Non-Payment of Rent

Non-Payment of Rent Eviction (Unlawful Detainer)

A Five-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit (Fillable PDF) 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 of Landlord - Failure to Pay Rent or Quit (Fillable PDF).

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.
