Paragraph 2 of the Colorado 100 is to be omitted or amended to read ".... other than as shown in the Exception ____ in Schedule B" if an encroachment onto the easement is in existence.
(6) Paragraph 3 of the Colorado Endorsement insures the lender against the forcible removal of any existing improvements on subject property which encroach onto adjoining property.
