LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The eviction moratorium in Nevada ends Tuesday, and many people across the state are scrambling to pay rent. Some studies estimate 300,000-500,000 people in Nevada could be evicted.
Starting Sept. 1, if you owe rent or back pay, your landlord can pursue a court order for evictions.
This can be for homes, apartments, or even extended stays.
Evictions cannot be carried out by a landlord, only by a constable.
Courts could face three times as many evictions this September as they did last year. To prevent a backup in the system, courts will grant 30 day stays on evictions to encourage mediation.
The Supreme Court of Nevada, with approval from Senate Bill 1, has launched a program for free mediation help for tenants and landlords.
Representatives can help determine if the tenant is eligible for any state rental assistance program, or negotiate payments before any court appearance or eviction order.
The phone number for that program is 702-455-3898 and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
