FILING AN EVICTION IN Nevada

There are two ways to begin Eviction proceedings in Nevada:

1. Filing and serving a formal, civil eviction known in Nevada as an 
 UNLAWFUL DETAINER ACTION.

2. Using a Summary Eviction contained in NRS 40.253 and NRS 40,254

All evictions must begin with a NOTICE. There are several types of notices to choose from. You may not always be able to use the quickest notice available. You must choose one that applies to the situation.  Nevada Evictions may take 10-180 days depending on the type of notice served.

 
NEVADA EVICTION NOTICES

There are separate notices for manufactured homes and non-manufactured homes.

5 DAY PAY OR QUIT

This notice is used for non-payment of rent from tenant. If there is NO grace period, you can go forward with the notice the day AFTER rent is due. If you have a grace period, you must wait until that time has passed. If the tenant offers you the FULL rental amount, you MUST ACCEPT. You can refuse partial payment from tenant. If you should decide to accept partial payment, you can refile a new notice for the balance of money due. There is NO other notice that follows this 5 Day Pay or Quit. When serving this 5 Day Pay or Quit Notice, you DO NOT count the day of service. Count 5 business days. The day after the 5 business days return to the Constable's  office.

3 DAY NUISANCE NOTICE

Can be used for what you consider a nuisance. It requires a written reason and has absolutely nothing to do with rent money. You do not count the day of service. The defendant has 3 working days to fix the problem. You need to return to Constable's office after the 3 rdday (return must be a business day). Need to follow-up with the 5 DAY UNLAWFUL DETAINER.

7 DAY NOTICE

Notice is used for weekly rentals. It requires a written reason is required for eviction. DO NOT count the day of service.  Count 7 business days. You need to return to Constable's office after the 7 thday (return date must be a business day). Need to follow-up with the 5 DAY UNLAWFUL DETAINER.

30 DAY NOTICE

Notice is used for reasons OTHER than Nuisance or Rent. DO NOT count the day of service--it runs consecutive through weekends and holidays. (Can not be used when a Lease is in effect). You need to return to the Constable's office after the 30 thday (return date must be a business day). Need to follow-up with the 5 DAY UNLAWFUL DETAINER.

5 DAY UNLAWFUL DETAINER

This is the follow-up notice to the 3-day, 7-day, and 30-day notice. Days are counted like a 5 day pay or quit notice (business days). There is an additional fee for this notice.

EVICTION STORAGE OF TENANT BELONGINGS

When an eviction is completed, the Landlord must store the tenants property for 30 days. You may not charge back rent, but can charge a reasonable storage fee. The tenant has to make arrangements with the Landlord to pick up their property. The Landlord has to notify the tenant in writing, prior to the last 14 days, by CERTIFIED MAIL, that all items will be disposed of after the 30 day hold period. The landlord may not hold the items against the rent.
