Updated June 20, 2022

A Nevada 7-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent) is a document used to specifically notify a tenant of their failure to pay rent on the due date, and if rent is paid in full within seven (7) days, their tenancy will be terminated. The tenant has every right to defend themselves if they have reason to believe that they aren’t in default for the non-payment of rent. In such a case, the tenant must take proper steps by filing an affidavit with the Justice of the Peace of the Las Vegas Township no later than noon on the fifth day.

When delivering the notice personally to the tenant, the landlord by law must bring a witness. If the tenant is absent from their residence, leaving a copy with an adult will suffice at either their residence or workplace and a copy must be sent via mail. If all else fails, leaving a copy in a conspicuous place at the tenant’s residence and mailing a copy can work as well.

How to Write

There are two parts to this 1-page document. The first part is the Seven-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit and the second part is the Affidavit of Service. Complete the first part by filling in the blank fields and after the notice has been delivered, complete the Affidavit of Service.

Step 1 – In the area on the right, locate the button labeled “PDF” below the image. Click on this button, then download a blank copy of this form to your machine. You may either use a PDF program editor to enter information directly or print it then enter the information manually. 

Step 2 – In the heading, locate the word “To,” then report the Full Name of the Tenant who this notice is focused on the blank line provided. On the blank line labeled “Address,” report the Complete Street Address where the Tenant is located. Then using the line with the areas labeled “City, State” and “Zip Code” report the balance of the Tenant’s Address.

Step 3 – Locate the word “From,” also in the heading.” On the blank line labeled “Landlord’s Name,” enter the Full Name of the Landlord who is issuing this Notice. Then, utilize the “Address” line to enter the Street Address of the Landlord. Below this, enter the City, State, and Zip Code of the Landlord’s Street Address on the blank line beginning with the label “City.”

Step 4 – The next area of this heading should be filled out at the time of service. On the blank line immediately following the phrase “Date of Service,” report the Date this Notice has been served to the Tenant. Then following the term “Manner of Service,” place a mark in the check box defining how this Notice is delivered. You may choose the box labeled “Personal,” “Substituted/Mailing,” or “Posting/Mailing.” 

Step 5 – The first statement, beginning with the phrase “Please Take Notice,” will seek a definition for the Rent that is overdue. Enter the Dollar Amount of Rent that must be paid on the first blank line following the dollar sign. Next, define the time period the Overdue Rent pertains to by entering the first Date of this time period on the blank line following the phrase “…period commencing from.” Then, on the blank space preceding the words “Rental payment,” report the last Date of the Time Period concerning the Overdue Rent. Finally, on the space following the term “…delinquent on,” report the exact Date the nonpayment resulted in the Tenant’s Account being delinquent.

Step 6 – The next statement, beginning with the phrase “Your failure to pay…” will document the consequences of a continued nonpayment. On the blank space, preceding the word “Township,” report the Name of the Township or County where the Landlord must obtain an Eviction Order if necessary.

Step 7 – The next statement requiring attention will begin with the words “The tenant is hereby advised…” On the blank space in this statement, enter the Name of the Township where the Tenant may challenge this nonpayment. 

Step 8 – The statement beginning with the words “The Justice of the Peace…” will contain a blank line where you must enter the Justice of the Peace Address where the Tenant may file an Affidavit for relief based on illegal actions the Landlord may have taken in regards to the Tenant or the Property. Note: Refer to Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 118A.390.

Step 9 – The next section, “Declaration of Service,” will require verification this Notice was served and a description of how it is served. First, on the blank line following the word “On,” report the Date this Notice was served. 

Step 10 – There will be three choices provided to define the service. One of these must be checked. If the Notice was served personally to the Tenant with a Witness present then, check the first box, enter the Date the Notice was served on the first blank line, have the Witness Print and Sign his or her Name (on the blank lines labeled “type or print witness’ name” and “witness’ signature, respectively), and have the Tenant Sign his or her Name on the Tenant Signature line. If the Notice was served to a reasonably reliable individual at the Tenant’s place of business or residence, then mark the second box and enter the Name of the recipient on the blank line in this choice. If the Tenant was not found at his or her place of business or residence and a Notice was left in a conspicuous place, delivered to a person residing there, and a copy was mailed then mark the third box. You may only choose one of these options. 

Step 11 – Several items must be furnished by the individual who has served the Notice to the Tenant on the last line of this document. In the first space, labeled “date,” enter the Date the Notice was served. Then on the blank lines labeled “type or print server’s name” the Name of the Server must be printed. Finally, on the line labeled “Server’s Signature,” the Server must sign his or her Name.
