Overview of the Summary Eviction Process (Other Than Non-Payment of Rent)

As a landlord considering evicting a tentant, it is important to know that in order to evict, you must begin with a Notice. There are several types of notices to choose from and you must choose one that applies to the specific situation for the tenant you intent to evict. Legal Process Service can help you through this process. Our trained staff is able to provide assistance in compliance with the “summary eviction” protocols which include drafting of notice, to service of process and the final step, lock out. When a client chooses LPS Eviction Service to evict a tentant, they are choosing a timely and convenient service.

If seeking an eviction for violations of lease agreements/nuisance or expired lease there are a few options. The Five Day Notice for Violation of Lease Agreement or Quit (NRS 40.2516) is chosen by landlords who wish to evict a tenant that has violated the lease agreement in a manner other than a nuisance. The Three (3) Day Notice to Quit For Nuisance, Waste, Assignment/Subletting, Unlawful Business, or Drug Violation is used for a reason other than non-payment of rent. Nevada law (NRS 40.2514) allows a landlord to serve/have served a 3 Day Notice to a tenant for reasons of nuisance. Notice for reasons considered to be a nuisance, require a written reason and/or description of the alleged nuisance.

Either of these options for the summary eviction processrequire the service of a second notice:

The Five (5) Day Unlawful Detainer Notice is a mandatory 2nd notice that must be served under Summary Eviction protocols when evicting a tenant for a reason other than non-payment of rent. The Five (5) Day Unlawful Detainer Notice is to notify the tenant(s) that are in violation of the first notice served to them and the Eviction will be the next step if they do not comply.

"If you are evicting for anything other than nonpayment of rent (nuisance or lease violation as examples) the landlord must serve a second eviction notice on the tenant (called a Five-Day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer) if the tenant fails to comply with the first notice by remedying the lease violation or moving.

If the tenant does not comply with the Five-Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit or the Five-Day Notice to Quit for Unlawful Detainer, you can file documents with the court for the township where the rental property is located to request an eviction order."
