Types of Eviction Notices
In Nevada, there are three different types of eviction notice that a landlord can send to a tenant. There is a five-day Notice to Quit that is used for the non-payment of rent. This option will give the tenant five days to pay the late rent that they owe or vacate the property. There is a five-day Notice to Quit for non-compliance. This can be used when a tenant has broken a specific rule that can be found in the original lease like having pets in a unit that is not pet-friendly or smoking in the common areas of the building. This type of notice will allow the tenant five days to adjust the behavior or vacate the property. The last notice that can be used is a 30-day Notice to Quit, which is only used to end a month-to-month tenancy.
What Happens After a Notice is Posted
When the tenant receives a notice, the landlord will have to wait for the number of days specified on the notice to pass. Then, if the tenant does not address the issue, the landlord will be able to go ahead and file a Complaint at the Local Justice Court in the county where the rental property is located. A copy of the lease will be required for this visit. Once the Complaint is sent to the tenant, a court hearing will be set. Both parties will need to be present at this hearing, and the judge will make a ruling either in favor of the tenant or the landlord. If the ruling is in favor of the landlord, the tenant will need to vacate.
When is Rent Due
The rent for any unit is going to be due on the first of the month or the day that is agreed upon by the tenant and the landlord in the original rental agreement. Once this date passes, the rent is officially considered to be late, and the five-day Notice to Quit for non-payment can be posted at any time.
How Long Does the Eviction Process Take
The amount of time that the full eviction process can vary based on the circumstances. Many evictions in Nevada can take between 10 and 180 days to complete. If the tenant fights the eviction, it can last even longer.
