Non-Payment of Rent
Non-Payment of Rent Eviction (Unlawful Detainer)
A Five-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit eviction notice can be used when a tenant is behind on their rent. This type of notice requires a minimum of 5 judicial days. Refer to NRS 118A.390 for additional information on non-payment of rent evictions.
Landlords must also complete an Affidavit - Failure to Pay Rent or Quit.
Non-Payment of Rent Notice Requirements
- Five judicial days if served in person, excluding day of service.
- If served in person with a tenant's signature, no proof of mailing is required.
- If served in person without a tenant's signature, the landlord must mail a copy with a certificate of mailing.
- If attempted to serve in person but no answer, you can post a copy to the front door and then mail a copy by certificate of mailing.
- Posting and mailing is counted differently. It is 5 judicial days (excluding day of service) followed by three straight days. If the third day falls on a weekend or holiday we give the tenant through the next business day to contest.
- The Five-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit form also includes a Declaration of Service.
