Nevada Eviction Notice Forms (3)

A Nevada eviction notice is a legal document used by landlords to notify a tenant that they have violated their lease contract. The notice will inform the tenant of how they violated their lease and what they must do to comply. If the tenant does not cure the violation within the allotted period, the landlord can file a summary eviction process lawsuit at their local justice court.

The first step in any eviction is to provide the tenant with the requisite notice as specified in the statutes.

Depending on the situation, provide one of the following notices to the tenant in person, by service via the sheriff, or by certified mail:

2. Wait for Tenant’s Response

After being served with the Notice to Quit, the tenant will have five to seven days to file with the Court an Answer Form (for non-payment of rent or other lease violation).

3. File Complaint with Court / Attend Hearing

After the legal wait period, the landlord can file a Complaint (for non-payment of rent or other lease violation) in the local justice court with a Cover Sheet. You will also need to provide a copy of the lease (if there is one), a copy of the notice delivered to the tenant, and evidence that the notice was delivered.

  • Constable Hendership Township, Clark County: $42[8]
  • Reno, Washoe County: $71[9]
