The bill requires a landlord and residential tenant to participate in
mandatory mediation prior to commencing an eviction action if the
residential tenant receives supplemental security income, federal social
security disability insurance, or cash assistance through the Colorado
works program (collectively, cash assistance). The landlord and
residential tenant do not have to participate in mediation if the residential
tenant did not disclose or declined to disclose in writing to the landlord
that the residential tenant receives cash assistance. Failure to comply with
mandatory mediation is an affirmative defense.
The bill prohibits a law enforcement officer from executing a writ
of restitution against a residential tenant for at least 30 days after the entry
of judgment if the residential tenant receives cash assistance.
The bill requires a written rental agreement to include a statement
that a residential tenant who receives cash assistance has a right to
mediation prior to the landlord filing an eviction complaint with the court.
The bill prohibits a written rental agreement from including a
waiver of mandatory mediation.
