Colorado allows a landlord a maximum of 60 days for a landlord

This answer was rated:

Colorado allows a landlord a maximum of 60 days for a landlord to return a damage deposit to a tenant along w/ an accounting of any money withheld for damages. Does this time period start from the last day of the lease or the following day, and does the time period end when the landlord mails and postmarks the refund or when the tenant finally accepts the letter after it has taken several days to be forwarded to the tenant because they would not give the landlord their new address?
It starts on the day after the lease terminates and the period ends when the landlord puts the check into the mail. If not, any tenant can claim that they never received it until after the 60 days and could come after the landlord.
