Nevada Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

Last Updated: December 18, 2023 by Roberto Valenzuela

A Nevada month-to-month rental agreement is a contract (not necessarily in writing) which allows a tenant to rent property from a landlord, for one month at a time, in exchange for a fee (“rent”). The rental renews monthly, until either party gives proper notice to end it.

Basics of a Nevada Month-to-Month Rental Agreement

In Nevada, a landlord and tenant create a month-to-month lease by agreeing to rent a property according to acceptable terms. Written rental agreements are clearer and legally stronger, but oral leases are legal in a month-to-month context.

Parties under a month-to-month lease enjoy full rights under Nevada landlord-tenant law. The tenant must use the property in a responsible way and pay rent on time. The landlord must keep essential features of the property in habitable condition, and protect the tenant’s quiet enjoyment of the lease.

The main difference between a month-to-month lease and a fixed-term lease is that month-to-month leases can be terminated (with proper notice) by either party for any reason without penalty. Landlords also can usually modify terms from one month to the next, again with proper notice.

Required Disclosures for Month-to-Month Rentals in Nevada

Nevada landlords may not rent a property out without making the following disclosures to a potential tenant, as relevant:

  • Landlord and Emergency Contact Disclosure – Nevada leases must contain the name and address of the landlord or authorized agent, plus a phone number for an emergency contact located within 60 miles of the rental property.
  • Late Fee Disclosure – Nevada only enforces late fees which are disclosed and agreed in the lease.
  • Move-In Checklist – Landlords must provide tenants with a move-in checklist to take inventory of existing property damage before move-in.
  • Right To Display American Flag Notice – Nevada leases must disclose the tenant’s right to display a United States flag for personal use, on a pole, staff, or in a window.
  • Foreclosure Disclosure – Nevada leases must disclose pending foreclosures, to alert tenants about the possibility of change in ownership and/or management.
  • Maintaining or Permitting Nuisance Notice – Nevada landlords must provide notice to tenants about the legal consequences of creating a nuisance on the rental property.
  • Lead-Based Paint – Landlords must provide an EPA-approved disclosure and informational pamphlet to tenants renting any property built before 1978.

Required Notice To End a Month-to-Month Rental in Nevada

Nevada lets both the landlord or tenant terminate a month-to-month lease with at least 30 days of advance notice, although certain vulnerable or disabled tenants may have an extra 30 days to move out as a grace period. In general, any reason that isn’t landlord retaliation is a legal and valid grounds for ending a month-to-month lease.

Nevada requires written notice to end a month-to-month lease. While mailed notice to the address of record is usually sufficient, Nevada can have complex notice delivery requirements, including some situations which require a licensed process server or other officer.
