Yes I have read the laws in Colardo, but she still did not follow the law. It must be written with a signature from owner. I think she did the email because she is aware of the PO Box, so thats her back up to state you were aware she wanted you out. IF and only IF you do stay, according to your local laws, she has to file and order to evict. Colorado court website states the court date will be set 8-10 business days after the filing. Which would be at minimum February 8, IF she files on the first.When will your house be ready?

Deep breath and just relax.
Just repeat: you're not losing your new house. This won't impact your credit. You don't need another rental. Everything will be fine.
The facts, if I'm reading this right, is you haven't even yet rec'd official notice to quit from your landlord. You also said you'd dropped a notice to quit to the landlord today by the 10th.
We're talking about a disagreement of ten days or less here.
(An aside, but were it me, I'd chill and stop communciating w her via email. Keep everything in writing, through certified mail.)
Even if you get notice to quit in time, and she filed an eviction claim on you on the 1st, and it got scheduled that speedily and you got served that speedily so you still remained in the home by the date of the hearing, and you didn't file to have it delayed if that WAS the case, she'd have to spend money and time and win and REPORT it in order for it to impact your credit report. And it would take even longer to get the sheriffs to enforce it.
You're out the 10th, by the latest. Sooner if you close sooner. The courts do not appreciate landlords filing cases to evict people who have already moved out, or are moving out. Do you see how unlikely this scenario is? Her winning?
If it got that far, all you'd have to do is go to court and show how you had already given notice, had planned to move out (have copies of closing docs) and had paid on time and had paid right up to the date you left, and this was an act of vindictiveness for leaving. But I would bet anything you won't be going to court. Just be out by the 10th and pay your rent as agreed. I seriously wouldn't be losing any sleep over it.
And you said it yourself, you don't have any other options. So really, why get worked up. You gave notice. Pay. Close as soon as you can, and get out as soon as you can. The rest, it will be what it is.

Yep that is what our realtor just told us is to rent a PPOD and throw all of our stuff in it and stay in a hotel. That is too much. We can't afford $250/night to stay in a decent hotel. And where will I tow my second car that isn't running??? The builder said that he has never heard of anyone moving in before closing in his 20 year career. So we are screwed and will probably end up in an apartment forever. I doubt I'll ever try to buy a home again. They get you all excited and then nothing. So depressed right now. I can't even think straight.
Where are you in CO. While in Denver for business I stayed at a suprsingly decent Ramada ,North of Denver. It was just $250 a week. Looks like it used to be a resort.
Theres no way I would throw away your deal for this.
