About Rich Krohn

Rich helps clients with a wide variety of real estate related matters. From large developers, lenders, and landlords to first-time buyers and FSBOs, Rich handles such issues as buying, selling, financing and leasing property, as well as securing entitlements, easements and other real estate rights. His practice includes all aspects of real estate related transactions, business, and financing.

In Colorado, deeds of trust are almost universally granted to and held, foreclosed and released by public trustees — one in each county. Rich represents all of the Colorado public trustees through the Colorado Public Trustees Association. He also represents all Colorado county treasurers as counsel for the Colorado County Treasurers Association.

In conjunction with his work for the public trustees, Rich has been one of the principal drafters of the new foreclosure statutes that govern conduct of public trustee foreclosures. Among other changes the new statutes provide a longer time for borrowers to remedy their situation.

Rich also keeps up with development, zoning, and land-use law, and he works with his clients to seek to obtain the best contract and financing terms available.

As general counsel for the Grand Junction Housing Authority, Rich is involved in everything from the planning, development, funding, and construction of large multifamily affordable housing projects to individual landlord/tenant issues.

In addition to his work with individual clients, Rich writes about and lectures for various legal, civic, and professional groups on many real estate related topics.

To relax, Rich plays golf, reads, and works on home improvement projects.
