Description of Program and Relief

Moratorium On Evictions, Foreclosures, and Late Fees for Commercial and Residential Properties

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued an executive directive temporarily suspending all lockouts, notices to vacate, notices to pay or quit, evictions, foreclosure actions, and other proceedings initiated under Nevada law that are based on a tenant or mortgagee’s default on any contractual obligations imposed by a rental agreement or mortgage. Additionally, the Governor has prohibited late fees and penalties for nonpayment of any lease, rental agreement, or mortgage during the State of Emergency.

Government or Lead Agency

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak

Dates Available:

Effective March 29, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. through the duration of the COVID-19 State of Emergency

Eligibility Requirements/Restrictions

The moratorium does not apply to: (i) evictions predating the March 12, 2020 Declaration of Emergency; (ii) previously filed evictions initiated due to the tenant posing some (non-COVID related) danger to other tenants or the public, criminal activity, or property damage; or (iii) tenants or mortgagees who are considered “dangerous” because they pose a threat to other residents, the public, or a landlord’s property. That an individual has tested positive for COVID-19 or potentially has been exposed to COVID-19 does not serve as a basis for establishing that a tenant or mortgagee is “dangerous” for the purposes of the executive directive.

The executive directive does not end all the contractual obligations between landlords and tenants. Tenants must still adhere to the terms of their contract with their landlord, property manager, or lender, and rent is still due for the time they occupy the property. However, late fees or penalties for nonpayment under the terms of a lease, rental agreement, or mortgage occurring between March 29, 2020 through the end of the State of Emergency are prohibited.
