Pueblo 81004, CO
May 27th, 2020|

My landlord is making me move out of my home that I’ve lived in for 4 years, just so he can live in this place. My neighbors said he can’t do that, and that the eviction notice is invalid, because he did not go through the proper means of serving an eviction notice. My neighbor said he can’t do that because of the COVID-19 eviction order, and I think Colorado is still under the stay-at-home order. My landlord also said he wouldn’t be giving me back my deposit. I can’t afford to move, there are no places within my budget, and I’m on SSI without HUD or Section 8. Section 8 and HUD in Pueblo, CO will not be open to the public to assist anyone until OCTOBER!!!

According to the eviction notice, I have to be out by May 31st at 5 pm, or he’ll charge me $30/day plus May rent, after he had previously told me that I don’t have to pay for May so that I can have money to move. I don’t think this is fair, considering I didn’t do anything wrong. I can’t find an apartment, because apartment managers want a prospective tenant to make at least twice or three times the rent amount, and I can’t do that. I have 2 parakeets, and I do not want them to be homeless, either. Should I stay, or should I just move and file a lawsuit for wrongful eviction? I need help and I’m running out of time…
