Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you need to know that commercial tenants do not enjoy as much protection from eviction and lock-out as residential tenants, in Nevada.
Nevada law outlines those rights and responsibilities for commercial landlords and tenants, too, but unlike in residential agreements, the lease agreement takes precedence over the statutes. This makes eviction easier and less costly for commercial landlords, but it’s not a free-for-all. No matter which side of commercial lockout you find yourself on, you need the help of an experienced Las Vegas real estate litigation attorney.
Expedited Eviction for Non-Payment
Landlords can use a faster process for evicting commercial tenants. A landlord can issue a five-day notice rather than the seven-day notice required for residential tenants. However, as a tenant, you have the right to respond and to get a hearing just as a residential tenant would. You just have less time to do it.
Formal Process Still Required for Lease Violations
Although the lease agreement holds sway, A landlord will still need to go through the formal eviction process in order to evict a commercial tenant for any reason other than non-payment. This includes lease violations.
