The Nevada eviction forms are given to a tenant in accordance with NRS 40.280 whether they have broken a condition of their lease agreement due to not paying rent, lease violation, or being it the end of a month to month tenancy. Also known as a “Summary Eviction”, the landlord must give a Notice to Quit to the tenant either by personal service (face-to-face) with a witness, certificate of mailing (return receipt), or the service from a Sheriff or constable. Afterwards, if the tenant does not comply with the terms and either rejects the request to cure or fails to vacate, the landlord may follow through with an eviction action (See Process Handbook) in the Local Justice Court.
Table of Contents
5-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent) – This form is for use when a tenant owes past due rent. Landlord must allow the tenant five days to respond before beginning the eviction process.
5-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance) – This form is for use when a tenant has failed to abide by the terms of the lease other than non-payment of rent.
30-Day Notice to Quit (Month to Month) – This form is for the parties to use when one or the other wants to end a month-to-month tenancy.
Rent is due on the date specified in the lease agreement between the tenant and landlord. If tenant fails to pay rent, landlord must provide five days notice to tenant before beginning the eviction proceedings in court.
Step 1 – The first step in any eviction is to make sure you provide tenant with requisite notice as specified in the statutes. If you do not provide notice in a proper manner or do not wait for the specified time period after notice is given, your eviction matter may not be allowed to go forward. Depending on the situation, provide one of the following notices to tenant in person, by service by sheriff or by certified mail:
- 5-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent)
- 5-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance)
- 30-Day Notice to Quit (Month to Month)
- Subsidized Housing – If the tenant is receiving government assisted rent then this form should be used.
Step 3 – After the five (5) day period the landlord can file a Complaint (for Non-Payment of Rent or other Lease Violation) in the Local Justice Court with a Coversheet. You will also need to provide a copy of the lease (if there is one) , a copy of the notice delivered to tenant and evidence that the notice was delivered.
A hearing will be set and both parties should attend.
Step 3 – If at the hearing the Judge rules in the favor of the landlord an Order will be granted and the tenant will be required to move-out or be forced out by a Constable who will have the legal right to “lock-out” the tenant from the premises.
