Can Tri-County Health Department make my landlord get rid of cockroaches in my rental property?

Tri-County Health Department does not have a Housing Ordinance and does not have legal authority over private property including rental properties. Tri-County can document a cockroach problem and provide educational resources on how to prevent and eliminate a cockroach infestation, but is not able to mandate (require) action by a landlord. If you are renting, it is important to thoroughly read your lease to identify who is responsible for pest control. Tri-County Health Department cannot provide legal services. For further legal questions you can contact Colorado Legal Services at 303-837-1313.
