Sorry I wasn't online when you sent your last post to me.
Colorado State law provides for a warranty of habitability for any lease contract. . Colo. Rev. Stat. § 38-12-503(1).
The warranty of habitability stands for all lease contracts and is paramount to any lease contract.
Furthermore Colorado law allow tenants to withhold rent under certain circumstances
It appears that the landlord has breached the warranty of habitability.
Colorado outlines the tenant's right to end the lease in these circumstances or to withhold rent.
38-12-507. Breach of warranty of habitability - tenant's remedies. (1) If there is a breach of the warranty of habitability as set forth in section 38-12-503 (2), the following provisions shall apply:
(a) Upon no less than ten and no more than thirty days written notice to the landlord specifying the condition alleged to breach of the warranty of habitability and giving the landlord five business days from the receipt of the written notice to remedy the breach, a tenant may terminate the rental agreement by surrendering possession of the dwelling unit. If the breach is remediable by repairs, the payment of damages, or otherwise and the landlord adequately remedies the breach within five business days of receipt of the notice, the rental agreement shall not terminate by reason of the breach.
(b) A tenant may obtain injunctive relief for breach of the warranty of habitability in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Hence the repairs necessary are justification for withholding the rent or abandoning the lease.
Similarly, because the landlord has not provided adequate notice before entering the property, you also have another reason to either sue the landlord in the small claims court for interference with your right to possession or also have justification to end the lease.
