DENVER: How often can a landlord legally raise rent

The Colorado Apartment Association reports rent is at a 14.4% year-over-year increase but is in line with the rising cost of living, which includes everything from gas to groceries.

Vacancy rates are historically low in Colorado, with nearly a dozen people competing for every available unit.

The Colorado Apartment Association reports the average rent in metro Denver is at $1,765. Landlords have a right to increase the rent for any amount. However, "There is some limitation under

Colorado law about how often they can do that, and they’re not supposed to do that more than once in a 12-month period” (FOX31 contacted tenants’ rights attorney Jacob Eppler.)

Help is available online for renters who need emergency or legal assistance.
