Eviction in Las Vegas

Eviction is not an easy process to carry out, especially in a city as populated as LAS Vegas. When Las Vegas property managers like Triumph Property Management rent your properties, they must cooperate with the tenants and if there comes a need to evict then it must be done through a formal procedure, being considerate of the financial and social means of the tenants and ensuring that the law is being followed.

Some property owners are not even acquainted with eviction laws and might struggle to get a good lawyer or file a suit. In such cases, Triumph Property Management is here to help you. So worry not, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will discuss the eviction process and different services being offered by Vegas Valley to make this process smooth and swift for you.

What is Eviction?

Eviction is when someone is forced to leave their property by a higher power. By law, the person who is getting evicted gets a notice before making other arrangements. Eviction is quite common in the state of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Eviction can be done for multiple reasons, such as when a tenant is unable to pay rent or has violated any lease obligation.

What is the Eviction Process?

The process of eviction begins with an eviction note sent to the tenants by the landlords. The tenants are given seven days, to peacefully vacate the house. However, it is important to note that after the NV Senate BIll of 151, passed on July 1st, 2019, only the Licensed Las Vegas process server can issue the eviction notice. If the property manager does not own this license, then he can hire a lawyer, sheriff, or constable to serve the eviction notice on his behalf.

The duration of the eviction process entirely depends on the type of notice served and the conduct of the tenants. Some landlords allow a grace period of around seven days for the tenants to pay the rent. Apart from painting the rent, the tenant also has an option of filing a motion or an answer with the justice court.

Filing a motion means the tenant is asking the judge to decide on the eviction case. There are two types of motion; in a stay motion, the tenant gets at least ten days for eviction so they can find a suitable accommodation whereas, in a set aside motion, there is a legal reason for stopping the eviction.

Laws About Eviction

While serving a notice of eviction, it is prohibited for a landlord to lock the property and impose security threats. Instead of speeding up the process, this can cause conflict and resentment between the landlord and the tenant and the landlord may have to face legal consequences.

The law regarding the tenant’s property states that after issuing the eviction notice, the landlord has to allow the tenant’s property, including personal belongings to be kept safely in the house for 30 days. In case of disposal of belongings, the landlord has to inform the tenant and if there is no response for more than 14 days, legal help can be sought.
