CO does not have a specific statute that governs right of entry.
So first check the lease on this issue. A reasonable notice requirement for access to the rental property should be addressed in the lease. A commonly used privacy clause allows a landlord access to the rental property at reasonable times and with reasonable notice to the tenant to make necessary repairs or reasonable inspections. Additionally, a landlord has the right to enter a rental unit without notice in emergencies.
If a lease does not include a written clause specifying when the landlord can enter a rental property, a tenant has exclusive use of the property and does not have to allow the landlord access. However, if a tenant refuses to allow the landlord entry, the tenant assumes all liability for damages and repairs to the rental unit, as well as consequential damage to other units.
You can also try to schedule a pest control spraying to get indirect access to the premises.
