What to know about Eviction Process in Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, and surrounding areas in Nevada

In Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City and surrounding regions, there are two processes a landlord has to choose from when evicting a tenant. 1) the “summary” eviction process; and 2) the “formal” eviction process. LPS staff is knowledgeable in providing Las Vegas eviction assistance and guidance through the “summary” eviction process which is the most common and most frequently used procedure.

Summary Eviction Process

All eviction proceedings “must” begin with the service of a notice. After service of the notice, the tenant has a mandatory period of time to comply with the notice or file an answer/affidavit with the court to dispute the notice. If the tenant does not comply with the notice and/or file an answer, then the landlord can proceed to “lock-out.”

Types of Summary Eviction Notices

Summary eviction notices fall in two categories: 1) non-payment of rent; or 2) for reasons other than non-payment of rent. Below are descriptions of the more common types of notices utilized with “summary evictions”.

Notices For Non-Payment of Rent - It is important that landlords be knowledgeable of what constitutes “rent” and the fees that can be included in a Five-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Surrender Premises. In order to clarify this, it is important that the meaning of “rent” be defined:

Five (5) Day Notice to Pay Rent or Surrender Premises (5 Day Pay or Quit) NRS 40.253– If seeking a “summary eviction” for reason of non-payment of rent, NRS 40.253 dictates that a tenant be served with this notice also referred to as a “5 Day Pay or Quit Notice”.

Notices for the Alternative: Violations of Lease Agreements/Nuisance

(These types of notices all require the service of 2nd Five Day Unlawful Detainer Notice)

Five Day Notice for Violation of Lease Agreement or Quit (NRS 40.2516) – This notice is chosen by landlords who wish to evict a tenant that has violated the lease agreement in a manner other than a nuisance.

Three (3) Day Notice to Quit For Nuisance, Waste, Assignment/Subletting, Unlawful Business, or Drug Violation – This notice is used for a reason other than non-payment of rent. Nevada law (NRS 40.2514) allows a landlord to serve/have served a 3 Day Notice to a tenant for reasons of nuisance. Notice for reasons considered to be a nuisance, require a written reason and/or description of the alleged nuisance.
