Colorado Landlord
Legislative Coalition

The mission of the Colorado Landlord Legislative Coalition (CLLC) is to empower Landlords and Property Managers from all over Colorado. The CLLC promotes involvement in the legislative process by offering a means to collaborate and negotiate with legislators while educating policymakers about the single-family and small multi-family rental housing industry. The Colorado Landlord Legislative Coalition aspires to create positive change for those that provide housing for others and in turn the renters of Colorado.

The Colorado Landlord Legislative Coalition aspires to create positive legislative change for those that provide housing for others and in turn the renters of Colorado.

This is a call to action.
Now more than ever, Colorado Landlords and Property Managers need to come together.

The single-family rental property industry has representation at the state capitol. That means we have not been at the table when bills are being introduced and negotiated.

We decided this had to change. Landlords and property managers now have a needed voice and a presence at the state legislature in order to protect and advance our industry, The Colorado Landlord Legislative Coalition was created for that purpose. We have hired lobbyist William Mutch of Mutch Government Relations to represent landlords, property managers, and related industry professionals.

Our objective is to create awareness, urgency, and advocacy for the single-family, rental property industry, our landlords, property managers, and others that serve our industry.

For many years we have relied on other real estate associations and individuals to represent us, but our specific interests were not always at the forefront. It is time for Colorado Landlords to converge and make our voices heard.

With your help, and membership dues we can create a strong coalition.

We will now direct our own advocacy with the hiring of our own lobbyist. A lobbyist that represents the single-family Landlord and Property Manager and our specific needs. We are getting a seat at the table when we need to be there to negotiate and advise. The Colorado Landlord Legislative Coalition will be all-inclusive and reach out and welcome all landlords and related industry professionals. The Coalition will be supported and funded with membership dues and managed by landlords and industry professionals.

The 2020 legislative session produced a number of Bills that directly affected our landlords and the way professional property managers are allowed to run their business.

When you join our organization, your membership dues help to fight bad legislation in 2021.
Let’s make a difference.

Thank you

William Mutch

Latest news from our Lobbyist:

From Our Lobbyist December 2, 2020

Special Legislative Session Allocates $54 MM more to housing and rental assistance With just about two weeks before the Thanksgiving holiday, Governor Jared Polis called the Colorado legislature into special session beginning this past Monday November 30th and charged them with providing additional relief related to the COVID 19 pandemic.  Among the issues, was continued funding for housing and renter assistance building upon work done in HB 20-1410, during the past legislative session.  CLLC responded quickly to the announced special session, organizing our legislative effort, and drawing upon our legislative committee, legislative liaison, and our professional lobbying firm to engage at the statehouse.  We were invited to the legislative table with other key housing and landlord tenant organizations to discuss upcoming legislation with the legislative sponsors, and to review a pre-released draft of the housing assistance legislation before its introduction Monday the 30th.  Working throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, CLLC members moved into action fully reviewing and analyzing the legislation, resulting in a strong support position.  Due to COVID restrictions at the State Capitol, CLLC Legislative Liaison, Annemarie Sunde of Legacy Property Management, testified remotely  before both the Senate Finance and the House Public Health Care and Human Services Committees, offering comments in support of the legislation, introducing CLLC as a newly formed organization participating in the legislative process, and answering a number of questions from the committee about both CLLC and details of the property management profession.  As the session concluded today, our round-the-clock efforts made a difference in the passage of SB 20B-002 sponsored by Senators Julie Gonzales (D-Denver) Chris Holbert (R-Douglas) and Reps. Tony Exum (D-Colorado Springs) and Kerry Tipper (D-Jefferson) final version linked here: https://leg.colorado.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2020B/bills/2020b_002_rer.pdf Among other provisions, SB 20B-002 moves and additional $54 MM into housing & rental assistance for those unable to make their rental payments due to their financial circumstance and providing much needed income for Colorado landlords.     Through our lobbyist, we also engaged with the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), gaining valuable insights about the rental assistance program and its importance for Colorado landlords.  We have included a link to the program here, which is available for landlords to apply for funds on behalf of their tenants, with rental payments made to landlords directly.  As we learn more about this program, we believe it is well structured and provides valuable relief for our landlord members and the tenants we work to serve. https://cdola.colorado.gov/rental-assistance As a final step, CLLC will be writing Governor Polis urging him to sign this important legislation and introducing CLLC representing Colorado landlords at the State Capitol.
