It is illegal for your landlord to lock you out without an eviction order from a judge. If you are illegally locked out, you should call the police, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, or the Office of the Attorney General. You also have the right to file a Complaint in Court.

You have the right to live in your unit without being harassed by your landlord.

Your landlord cannot use the pandemic or late rental payments as an excuse to enter your property without warning, to get security to threaten you, to threaten cutting off your utilities, or harass you in any other way.


You have the right to live in a habitable unit with essential services.

The suspension does not eliminate a landlord’s duties to keep your property maintained so that it’s livable and you have all the services you need to survive (heat, air, running water). Make sure you give your landlord written notice of any issues related to an essential service or habitability.


You have the right to dispute a trespassing citation.

If the police are called and a trespass citation is threatened, remind the police officer that you are a tenant and you cannot be cited for trespassing on a property where you live. Politely remind law enforcement that this is a landlord-tenant dispute.


You have the right to continue living in your unit, even if you cannot afford rent.

During the eviction suspension, you cannot be evicted for nonpayment of rent or for no reason. The only reason a person can be evicted during the suspension is if that person poses a danger to the public or other tenants, engages in criminal activity, or seriously damages the property.


You have the right to negotiate rental payments if you cannot afford to pay in full.

You have the right to talk to your landlord and come up with a payment plan that works for you. Governor Sisolak has encouraged landlords to work with tenants on a payment plan and has ordered late fees to be waived. If you are able to agree on a payment plan with your landlord, make sure that you put that agreement in writing. Always document every conversation you have with your landlord.


You have the right to contest an eviction notice.

If you are served with a “3-day Notice to Quit for Nuisance” and a “5-day Notice of Unlawful Detainer,” you have the right to contest the eviction in court by filing an affidavit during the 5 days after you receive the “5-day Notice of Unlawful Detainer.”


You have the right to seek legal assistance.

If you are in need of legal assistance, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada offers you their support. Call them at 702-386-1070 from 8:30 a.m.to 5:00 p.m. on business days, or send them an email at info@lacsn.org.
