Nevada Notice Requirements to Terminate a Month-to-Month Tenancy

Find out Nevada rules for how much notice you (and your landlord) must give each other to end a month-to-month tenancy.

It is easy for landlords and tenants to end a month-to-month tenancy in Nevada. (The situation is more complicated when it comes to breaking a fixed-term lease.)

Notice Requirements for Nevada Landlords

In most situations your landlord does not need to give you a reason (although acting on discriminatory or retaliatory motives is illegal). A landlord can simply give you a written notice to move, allowing you 30 days as required by Nevada law and specifying the date on which your tenancy will end. Tenants who are 60 years or older or physically or mentally disabled may request an additional 30 days' possession, but only if they have complied with basic tenant obligations as set forth in Nev. Rev. Stat. § 118A (termination notices must include this information).

Your landlord may legally provide less less notice in specific circumstances--for example, if you have not paid rent, if you have violated other terms of your rental agreement (for example, bringing in an unauthorized tenant), or if you have violated basic responsibilities imposed by law (such as by dealing drugs on the rental property).

Notice Requirements for Nevada Tenants

It is equally easy for tenants in Nevada to get out of a month-to-month rental agreement. You must provide the same amount of notice (30 days) as the landlord (unless your rental agreement provides for a shorter amount of notice). Be sure to check your rental agreement which may require that your notice to end the tenancy be given on the first of the month or on another specific date.

In some situations, you may be able to move out with less (or no) notice—for example, if your landlord seriously violates the rental agreement or fails to fulfill legal responsibilities affecting your health or safety.

Nevada State Law and Resources on Terminating a Month-to-Month Tenancy

Check Nevada state law (Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 40.251, 118A.300) for the exact rules and procedures for how landlords must prepare and serve termination notices and for any special rules regarding how tenants must provide notice. See the Laws and Legal Research section of Nolo for advice on finding and reading statutes and court decisions.

The state guide to tenants' rights (see Nevada's Tenant's Rights), published by Nevada Legal Services, may also have useful information on how month-to-month tenancies end.
