A Nevada eviction notice form for nonpayment of rent is a written document that states a tenant has 7 days to pay the rent or to vacate the premises. Additionally, there are other notice forms for other possible grounds for eviction in Nevada.
Read further to learn about what information is required on an eviction notice for it to be valid, legally acceptable ways of delivering notices, and types of notices for all possible grounds for eviction.
Information Required for All Nevada Notices
Under Nevada law, all eviction notices are required to contain special language for tenants 60 years old and above, tenants with mental and/or physical disabilities , or for certain types of workers .
The notice should include the fact that residents over the age of 60, or those tenants who have mental and/or physical disabilities, have the right to request a 30-day extension in writing after receiving an eviction notice. However, according to Nevada law, such residents must provide proof of age and/or disability.
Federal, tribal, or state workers (and their household members) may request a written extension if they receive a termination notice and are experiencing a work shutdown at the time of the notice. The request can ask that the extension continue from the date of the shutdown until 30 days after the end of the shutdown.
Unless the landlord can prove that granting an extension for one of the reasons above will create a financial hardship for the landlord, the tenant must be allowed to remain in the rental unit for the amount of time requested in the extension.
Acceptable Ways of Delivering Notices
In the state of Nevada, landlords can deliver an eviction notice through one of the following methods :
- Giving a copy to the tenant in person
- Leaving a copy with someone of “suitable” age and discretion if the tenant cannot be found AND mailing a copy to the tenant
- Posting a copy of the notice in a conspicuous place on the rental unit AND mailing a copy to the tenant
The notice must be served by the sheriff, constable, or licensed process server. Proof of service must include the badge number or license number of the person who served the notice.
Types of Eviction Notices
Each possible ground for eviction has its own process and notice requirements.
7-Day Eviction Notice for Nonpayment of Rent
A landlord is allowed to evict a tenant for failing to pay rent on time.
According to Nevada law, rent is considered late the day after it’s due; grace periods, if any, are addressed in the lease/rental agreement.
Once rent is past due, the landlord must provide tenants with a 7-Day Notice to Pay if the landlord wants to file an eviction action with the court. This notice gives the tenant the option to pay the past due amount in full within 7 days in order to avoid eviction.
If the tenant does not pay the rent due by the end of the notice period and remains on the property, the landlord may proceed with the eviction process.
The Eviction Notice for Nonpayment of Rent should include the total amount of past-due rent owed and the fact that the tenant can pay past-due rent in full in order to avoid eviction.

5-Day Eviction Notice for Non-Compliance
A tenant can be evicted in Nevada if they do not uphold their responsibilities under the terms of a written lease/rental agreement.
Nevada landlords must provide tenants with a 5-Day Notice to Comply, giving the tenant 5 days to correct the issue or move out of the rental unit.
Typical lease violations under this category could include things like damaging the rental property, having too many people residing in the rental unit, and having a pet when there’s a no-pet policy.
Note that illegal activity is not included in this category.
If the tenant fails to correct the issue/remains on the property after the notice period expires, the landlord may proceed with the eviction process.
The notice should include :
- The specific lease violation(s)
- What the tenant can do to remedy the violation
- The date the lease will terminate if the tenant doesn’t comply within the deadline

5/7/30-Day Lease Termination Notice for “At-Will” Tenants
In the state of Nevada, if tenants “hold over,” or stay in the rental unit after the rental term has expired, then the landlord must give tenants notice before evicting them. This can include tenants without a written lease and week-to-week and month-to-month tenants.
Often this type of eviction applies to tenants who are at the end of their lease and the landlord doesn’t want to renew.
The amount of time required in the notice depends on the type of tenancy.
- At-will tenants – For at-will tenants, regardless of length of tenancy, the landlord must provide tenants with a 5-Day Notice to Quit.
- Week-to-week – If rent is paid on a week-to-week basis, a landlord must provide the tenant with a 7-Day Notice to Quit.
- Month-to-month/Periodic – If rent is paid in any time period other than weekly, tenants must be given a 30-Day Notice to Quit.
If the tenant remains on the property after the notice period expires, the landlord may proceed with the eviction process.
The notice should include the date the tenancy will terminate.
