A Nevada eviction notice is a legal document used by landlords to notify their tenants that they have violated their lease contract. The notice will inform the tenant of how they violated their lease and the steps to be back in compliance. If the tenant does not cure the violation stated in the notice, the landlord will have the right to file a Summary Eviction Process (lawsuit) at their Local Justice Court .

How to Evict (Process)

Step 1 –  The first step in any eviction is to make sure you provide the 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 the notice is given, your eviction matter may not be allowed to go forward. Depending on the situation, provide one of the following notices to the tenant in person, by service via the sheriff or by certified mail:

Step 2 –  After being served with the Notice to Quit the tenant will have five (5) days to file with the Court an Answer Form (for Non-Payment of Rent or other Lease Violation ).

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.
