A contractor was hired to install a furnace in a home in

A contractor was hired to install a furnace in a home in denver, co which was owned by my mother. the home was under contract to be sold at the time. The install was illegal as the contractor was not licensed to perform the work in denver, however he was paid before the fact was uncovered he 1)didnt have a licese to work in denver and 2) no permit was issued to do so. Another contractor was hired to replace the furnace and the home closed. Denver will not allow me to sue the original contractor as the homeowner ( my mother) now resides in other county. Question is, can she sue in the county she currently resides?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: COlorado.
