NV Governor Reverses Course

In a disappointing move this evening, Governor Sisolak extended the eviction moratorium. (See the Original Directive #25 here)

This extension would continue the prohibition on evictions based on non-payment of rent. Other types of evictions such as those due to damage, crime or danger to a tenant or other occupant, were lifted August 1, and are not affected by this recent extension. Nevada REALTORS® recognizes the hardship that this places on landlords. 

The extremely short time notice given thrusts landlords planning a valid eviction for non-payment into a skidding halt. Further, while tenants have had access to financial relief from many sources, landlords have gone over 5 months in some cases without seeing rent from the very tenants who are receiving the government relief.
 
Open houses and in-person showings of tenant-occupied properties are still prohibited.
