Nevada’s moratorium on residential evictions for nonpayment of rent has ended, but those needing help can get it through the Centers for Disease Control.
The agency’s order generally barring evictions is in effect through December 31, but tenants need to take action to take advantage of it.
Clark County officials say tenants must sign a CDC declaration form confirming that they are covered and provide a copy to the landlord, the property owner, or other persons who have the right to evict.
Once landlords have been furnished a CDC declaration, they must not serve an eviction notice to a tenant, file an eviction case with the court, or attempt in any way to remove the tenant from the residential property unless specifically allowed by the CDC order.
However, unpaid rent does accrue, and there will be cases where evictions are allowed.
