Nevada Required Landlord Disclosures
Learn about the disclosures that landlords in Nevada must provide tenants, usually in the lease or rental agreement.
Nevada requires landlords to make the following disclosures to tenants:
Owner or agent identity. Landlord must disclose to the tenant in writing at or before the commencement of the tenancy the name and address of the person authorized to manage the premises, the principal or corporate owner of the premises, and a person authorized to act for and on behalf of the owner for the purpose of service of process and for the purpose of receiving notices and demands. (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 118A.260)
Nonrefundable fees. The purpose of all nonrefundable fees or deposits (which are legal in Nevada, unlike many states) must be stated in writing. Lease must explain fees that are required and the purposes for which they are required. (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 118A.200)
Move-in checklist. Lease must include a signed record of the inventory and condition of the premises under the exclusive custody and control of the tenant. (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §118A.200)
Nuisance and flying the flag. Lease must include a summary of the provisions of NRS 202.470 (penalties for permitting or maintaining a nuisance); information regarding the procedure a tenant may use to report to the appropriate authorities a nuisance, a violation of a building, safety, or health code or regulation; and information regarding the right of the tenant to engage in the display of the flag of the United States, as set forth in NRS 118A.325. (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §118A.200)
Foreclosure proceedings. Landlord must disclose to any prospective tenant, in writing, whether the premises to be rented is the subject of a foreclosure proceeding (disclosure need not be in the lease). (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §118A.275)
Check the Nevada statute (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 118A.200, 118.260) for details on these disclosures. See the Laws and Legal Research section of Nolo for advice on finding and reading statutes and court decisions.
Also, check your local ordinance for any city or county disclosure requirements. To find yours, check your city or county website (many are listed on State and Local Government on the Net), or contact the office of your mayor, city manager, or county administrator.
Finally, see the Required Landlord Disclosures article for details on federally-required landlord disclosures and other information on disclosures about the rental property.
