    Liens-Motor Vehicle Repair Facility Complaints


    When a repair facility makes a repair on a vehicle, a lien is considered to exist on the vehicle. If the bill is not paid, the repair facility must send a certified letter giving the consumer 15 days to pay the bill. If the bill is not paid, the repair facility can tow the vehicle and hold it in storage until the bill is paid. If the bill remains unpaid, the repair facility can obtain title to the car by filing an affidavit with the County Clerk.

  • The filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual has committed a crime(s).
    A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. See Colo. RPC 3.6.
