The Colorado rental application allows landlords to verify a prospective tenant's background information and credit history before signing a lease agreement. In Colorado, there is no maximum for an application fee (the landlord may ask for any amount), as long as the entire fee is used for actual expenses incurred by the landlord and is comparable to the fee charged to other prospective tenants.
Colorado landlords may ask tenants for any amount as a security deposit; there is no limit.
