Try an Eviction Mediation Program Instead of a Justice Court or an Eviction Lawuit if Your Tenant Violates Their Lease Agreement.

In Nevada, you are required to provide a 30-day advance warning before filing for eviction in some circumstances. In many situations, however, you may remove a tenant with less notice. Today we’ll look at Nevada eviction schedules and the various types of behaviors that merit different kinds of eviction warnings.

As a reminder, any schedules mentioned in this post should be interpreted as business days, not calendar days. Also, the day on which you give your tenant an eviction notice is not considered one of the days. Now, let’s get started.

No Cause Eviction Process

When you evict a tenant without just cause, you are required to give them a 30-day eviction to begin the eviction process. This implies that the eviction is not the result of any wrongdoing or breach of contract by the tenant. When the landlord wants to sell or occupy the property themselves, this is the most typical ground for serving eviction notices without cause. The renter must be given at least 30 days’ notice to quit in these situations.

These types of eviction notices are only valid for tenants who have ended their lease agreement. If your tenant is over the age of 60 years old or has a mental or physical disability, they are entitled to an additional 30 days to stay on the property if they can prove their age or status. Whether your tenant stays for 30 days or 60 days past the end of their lease, they must continue paying rent to you. You have the option to give them a seven-day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit if they do not pay rent during the extension unless the court says otherwise beforehand.

If the tenant remains on the premises for 30 or 60 days and then refuses to depart, you can issue them a five-day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer. This notice informs your tenant that their presence is now unlawful. It’s also worth noting that if your tenant pays rent weekly, you only need to give them a seven-day warning.

Sub-30-Day Notice to Quit Situations

There are several circumstances in which it is not necessary to give your tenant a 30-day notice to quit. These are just a few of the most prevalent ones:

Tenancy-at-Will Cases

If your tenant is on a tenancy-at-will agreement, you’re only required to give them a five-day notice before pursuing eviction. If the tenant does not respond to the first five-day notification, you may issue them a second five-day Unlawful Detainer notice.

If you’re not familiar with a tenancy-at-will, it basically implies that the tenant does not have a formal lease agreement with the landlord and may or may not pay rent to stay in your rental property. You’ll sometimes see a tenancy-at-will when people allow friends or relatives to stay in their rental home for an extended amount of time without paying rent, or without having a known expiration date for their stay.

Nuisance, Waste, Illicit Activities, Etc.

This is one of the sections where you may find descriptions for those “rogue” tenants. In Nevada, you are only required to provide a three-day notice to quit and a five-day Unlawful Detainer notice if the tenant refuses to leave if they engage in waste, illegal drug use, illegal business, subletting, or if they become a nuisance. This category covers situations where the tenant becomes disorderly, causes disturbances in the neighborhood, engages in unlawful activity, or damages or destroys property.

They’ll take care of everything from beginning to end, so you can avoid the summary eviction process, formal eviction process, or an eviction lawsuit, and not have to deal with tenants directly.

Lease or Rental Agreement Violations

This is another area where you might encounter problems with your Nevada tenant. If your tenant breaches their lease or rental agreement in Nevada, you are entitled to give a five-day notice to vacate the property or remedy the issue. This sort of eviction notice allows the tenant to remedy the problem within five days, or move out if they do not wish to make any changes. You may issue a second five-day notice for Unlawful Detainer if the tenant fails to resolve the situation and refuses to leave the premises after being given the first five-day opportunity.

Which Situation Are You In?

As you can see, there are many more scenarios that call for a shorter eviction time period than 30 days. You must follow the 30-day rule if you simply don’t want that individual living there anymore, even though no rental agreement or lease violation exists and they’ve been paying rent on time. Furthermore, if they are able to demonstrate that they are over 60 years old, or have a mental or physical disability, you may be required to allow them to remain in the rental home for an additional 30 days.

Don’t let those bad tenants who break their rental agreement or lease agreement, create problems for the community, or harm your property stay on your property for 30 days if you don’t want them to.
