I think all the comments have some good advice.
Dan has you continuing to rent the property. In one post you said that is not an option? Get a GOOD lawyer, cause your in over your head. And this is not a good do it yourself case.

I believe you misunderstand what MrDan is saying. The OP still has a valid lease in effect until she takes action to terminate the lease by the tenant failing to pay rent after proper notice. The subtenants lease will end when the tenants lease is terminated. If the subtenants holdover, than an eviction to remove them would be necessary. As was pointed out, cash for keys might be a simple solution to remove subtenants. If the landlord has received rent from the subtenants, by law a verbal month to month tenancy has been created. The landlord can end the month to month with a 30 day notice without doing an eviction. What's not to understand? There is no continuing to rent the property involved!

    " As the LL, I gave my tenant permission to sublease and held him completely responsible for the entire rent (with permission to sublease through his own lease agreement with those subleasing).

    The tenant left in the middle of the night, changed his contact info, with 2 months lefts on his lease. He stole rent and deposit from one of his subleasees but left both of them to fend for themselves."

    ELVIS has left the building!
    With the sub lease T rent, and his belongings. Good luck with chasing this T down.
    Earlier post before Dad, suggested that money be offered to sub T to leave. I would try this first. If this tactic don't work. A good lawyer would be the next fastest way to go.
    Janet. No misunderstanding on my part.

    Yes Janet, that is the approach I am taking.. Tenant has abandoned with no way to contact, intentionally he abandoned the condo it has been 30 days, lease is terminated. Thankfully we did not accept money from the subtenants and gave them a 30 day notice so from here it is eviction, if they dont leave on their leave dates.

I found out today according to CO law, the tenant we rented to abandoned the property and since it has been more than 30 days, his lease is considered terminated which makes the other tenants holdovers. They were given 30 days notice that their leases were being terminated, so at this point all there is left to do is evict if they dont leave on their respective leave dates
