Nevada 7 Day Notice To Quit

Last Updated: January 25, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

Nevada 7 Day Notice To Quit is a letter which complies with state legal standards to begin eviction against a tenant for nonpayment of rent, in most tenancies that have lasted over 45 days. The tenant must pay the balance due, or move out within seven (7) judicial days (i.e., not counting weekends or legal holidays) of receiving notice.

When To Use a Nevada 7 Day Notice To Quit

A Nevada 7 Day Notice To Quit begins the eviction process when the a tenant is late on rent. A landlord may deliver this notice when any portion of the rent remains unpaid, beginning the day after it’s normally due.

There are separate 7 Day Notice To Quit forms applicable to properties respectively within, or outside of, Las Vegas.

The 7 Day Notice To Quit applies to most Nevada tenancies. There are some exceptions when the tenancy is under 45 days old, and the tenant pays rent weekly or more frequently (e.g., daily). Other Nevada lease termination notices 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 7 Day Notice To Quit

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

  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 payment 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 7 Day Notice To Quit

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.
