Nevada 5 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

Last Updated: January 25, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

Nevada 5 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to begin eviction against a tenant for a lease violation, such as failing to properly maintain the premises. The tenant must take appropriate corrective action or move out within five (5) judicial days (i.e., not counting weekends or legal holidays) of receiving notice.

When To Use a Nevada 5 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

Use a 5 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate To begin the eviction process for the following tenant violations:

  • Failure to maintain the rental unit in a clean and sanitary manner
  • Occupancy violations
  • Parking in an unauthorized area on the premises
  • Other lease violations

Some types of Nevada lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

How To Write a Nevada 5 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

To help ensure the legal compliance of a Notice To Vacate:

  1. Use the full name of the receiving parties, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  3. Specify the basis for terminating the tenancy, and the corrective action(s) necessary to avoid termination
  4. Indicate whether there is a request to pause eviction due to foreclosure
  5. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  6. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  7. Print name and sign the notice
  8. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Serve a Nevada 5 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

Nevada landlords may have a sheriff, constable, licensed process server, or agent for an attorney deliver a Notice To Comply or Vacate using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Hand delivery to a person of suitable age on the property who can accept the notice on behalf of the other party, PLUS delivery by overnight mail
  3. Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, such as the entry door, PLUS delivery by overnight mail

In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
