Senate Bill 151 to draw out eviction process

A very active Democrat majority legislature is looking for as many ways to ruin a favorite investor destination for rental housing. Rather than seek supply side solutions to add to the inventory of rental housing, they would rather punish the people providing the existing housing.

  • Increase the pay or quit timeline from 5 full days to 10 judicial days;
  • Increase the period of time in which the constable has to remove a tenant in default of rent from within 24 hours of the court order to no earlier than 48 hours;
  • Increase the amount of time a person has after receiving a written notice to surrender when the person holds over and continues possession of real property or a mobile home that has been sold or foreclosed upon from 3 days to 30 days; and,
  • Change the method of service of the notices to the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure or the Justice Court Rules of Civil procedure, as applicable.
