12-2-5 Ownership of Security Deposit and Payment of Interest.
Any security deposit for residential property subject to regulation under state law shall be and remain the sole property of the tenant advancing same, and such security deposit plus interest shall not be retained by the person having custody of it after the termination of the tenancy except for actual cause, pursuant to the provisions of state law dealing with retention of security deposits.

12-2-6 Return of Accrued Interest - Enforcement.
(a) No person having custody of a security deposit for residential property shall fail to return accrued interest on the security deposit within one month after termination of the lease or surrender and acceptance of the premises, whichever occurs last, and according to the provisions of state law concerning the return of the related security deposit, notice of any deductions therefrom, and the legality of such deductions.

(Ordinance Nos. 4969 (1986); 7158 (2002))
12-2-7 Interest Rate on Security Deposits.
(a) The rate of interest to be paid upon the refund of security deposits shall be determined by the manager by averaging the interest rates being paid on one-year certificates of deposit by three banks doing business within the city that, in the view of the manager, provide indicia of being significant participants in the local banking industry. This average interest rate will be calculated as of December 15 of each year or, if that date falls on a weekend or holiday, on the first business day thereafter. The manager's determination of the rate shall be final. The rate shall be published in a newspaper of general circulation or posted on a city internet site that is accessible to members of the general public. The average interest rate so determined shall be rounded no more than two places to the right of the decimal point. It shall become the rate of interest paid on any security deposit that is provided to a landlord during the calendar year starting on January 1 of the year immediately following the date of the manager's determination.
(b) For the year 2004, the rate of interest shall be determined by the manager using the method set forth in subsection (a) of this section, within ten days of March 19, 2004. Within three days of that determination, the interest rate so determined shall be published or posted and shall, thereafter, apply to any security deposit provided to a landlord as a consequence of a lease or rental agreement that is entered into after the date on which the manager's determination is published or posted. In every subsequent year, the manager's determination shall be made pursuant to the provisions of subsection (a) of this section.
(c) Interest on security deposits for multi-year tenancies shall be calculated separately each year of tenancy in the manner provided in this section. The manager shall retain and make available a list of all prior year interest rates and shall provide a standard formula for the calculation of interest rates on multi-year tenancies.
(d) Payments of interest on security deposits made pursuant to lease or rental agreements entered into prior to March 19, 2004, shall be paid at the rate of five and one-half percent per annum simple interest on the full amount of the security deposit.
(Ordinance No. 7320 (2004))
12-2-8 Waiver Void.
Any provision, whether oral or written, in or pertaining to a rental agreement whereby any provision of this chapter is waived shall deemed to be against public policy and shall be void.

 Adopted by Ordinance No. 4957.
 If a landlord deliberately fails to return a security deposit during the additional seven-day notice period set forth in the State Security Deposit Act, §38-12-103(3)(a), C.R.S., the retention of the deposit is "willful" under the State Act. Turner v. Lyons, 539 P.2d 1241 (Colo. 1975)
