If you’re a Denver landlord, then you’re probably aware of the new licensing and inspection requirements. These requirements and the approval process can be frustrating, unclear, and may even make you question if you want to quit investing altogether. Today’s guest, Andy Rhodes of Colorado Complete Inspections (CCI), knows all about the program and its headaches. Last year, CCI completed 3900 multifamily unit inspections! He noticed the issues that were causing the most failures and figured out how CCI can set their customers up for success. Find out everything you need to know to pass your Denver rental inspection and get your license.

There are three main reasons landlords fail their property inspection:
- Missing smoke detectors and other fire safety issues
- Not having GFCI outlets in the bathrooms
- Not having a pressure release valve for the water heater that pipes into a drain.
While CCI can’t fix electrical issues, they created a fire safety bundle to help with the biggest point of failure. When you schedule an inspection with them, you can simply purchase the bundle and they’ll install smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and everything you’ll need to be up to fire safety code.
As a Denver landlord, it’s your responsibility to provide a safe living environment for your tenants that meets the city’s baseline requirements. CCI is a great resource to help you understand and meet these requirements and pass your Denver rental license inspection.
