Nevada Residential Lease Agreement Form
Every state has a set of required disclosures for landlords. The following are the mandatory disclosures for Nevada:
Lead-Based Paint Disclosure - It is a federal law that landlords should disclose if the property was constructed before 1978. Along with the information, the landlord must also provide tenants with educational materials about the dangers of lead-based paint (Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992 § 1018).
Move-in Checklist - The landlord must provide the tenant with a checklist that enumerates the conditions of the property before the tenant moves in. The account must be signed by both parties (NRS 118A: Landlord and Tenant: Dwellings).
Nuisance Penalty - A Nevada landlord must also disclose the rules and regulations within a property, including how nuisances and violations will be reported to government authorities (NRS 118A.515).
Right to Raise Flag - The tenant has the right to raise the United States flag if they wish but only within the area where they have exclusive rights as a tenant. The landlord must inform the tenant of this guideline (NRS 118A.325).
Foreclosure - The Nevada landlord must also inform the tenant if the property is subject to foreclosure proceedings (NRS 118A.275).
A Nevada landlord can collect as much as three months’ worth of rent as a security deposit. At the end of the tenancy, the amount can be used to repair damages to the property that were incurred during their lease. The move-in checklist will be handy at this stage because identifying damage will be simple.
The landlord has 30 days to return the security deposit or its balance to the tenant since the amount is refundable unless there was an early termination of the tenancy (NRS 118A.242).
