The eviction process in Nevada, when compared to other areas of the country, is fast. We begin the eviction process on or about the 5th of the month by using a local process server to issue a 5 Day Pay or Quit Notice at the property. When the prescribed time has expired and the tenants have still not met their obligations we will file the appropriate paperwork (Affidavit of Complaint, Order for Summary Eviction, Instructions to the Constable etc.) with the Justice Court and Constables office. Usually between 2-4 business days later the tenants will be physically removed from the property and the locks will be changed. The entire process averages about 4-6 weeks.
Being a landlord is a 'business'. With any business or investment there comes with it a certain amount of risk. The most realistic answer to the question is that you "can't be sure" of anything. However, you can take the necessary steps to reduce your risk by using a property manager that has a comprehensive screening process, executes a solid lease agreement and checks on the tenant periodically. A relatively small percentage of people cause major amounts of damage to a property. There is also a small percentage of tenants that will go out of their way to improve the property. Most people fall in the middle. There are no guarantees in this business. Your best protection is to be financially prepared in the event of a vacancy, damage and/or major repair and to maintain adequate landlord insurance.
We will attempt to collect a debt for 30 days after the end of tenancy. If no agreement is reached the file will be sent to a collection agency. It is always recommended that you pursue legal advice from a licensed attorney.
Your property will rent faster and demand a higher rent value if it is clean and in good condition.
