Boulder Area Rental Housing Association
BARHA is the premier advocate and information source for residential rental property owners and related business service professionals.
Advertisements: The city is pro-actively reviewing advertisements for rental units to be sure they include a statement of maximum occupancy. The city did note, that in a quick review of Craigs List, there was a non-compliance in this area. I urge all members to review their advertising, as those who have advertised incorrectly, may be the first on the list to be reviewed once they start actively enforcing. In addition, your rental license # must be on all advertising. If you do not know what your occupancy limits are, please check here: https://maps.bouldercolorado.gov/rental-inquiry/
Signage: Please remember in properties of fewer than five units, the legal occupancy must be posted when a unit is shown to a prospective renter.
Defense: The current ordinance no longer includes the “active and diligent” management practices for over-occupancy. The defense is now limited to those who have complied with advertising and posting requirements, have received rent payments from those listed on the lease whose number must comply with occupancy limits and have required each tenant to acknowledge in writing the legal occupancy limit.
