No matter how thoroughly rental applications are screened, sometimes tenants go bad. They may come up with 1000 different excuses but the bottom line is simple: they are costing you money. That's why it's best to get them out as quickly and efficiently as possible. There are a few ways to handle this, depending on the type of lease or rental agreement you have, and the reasons you need to evict the tenant.
It can be as simple as posting a notice, or it can involve filing with the courts, presenting the materials in court, hiring the constable to perform a lockout, lock changes, etc. I am familiar with the various Las Vegas eviction methods and procedures and can navigate the system for you.
My Eviction Service includes posting and mailing all required notices, filing with the courts and as well as the court appearance, coordinating with the constable and a contractor to change locks, a video of the lockout / walk through of the property after lockout. I will handle the entire process from start to finish with professionalism.
Can you do the eviction yourself? Sure you can. However, if you are unfamiliar with the process it is easy to make a very simple mistake that can result in having to start the whole process over. The courts do not accept imporoper forms - even a small mistake can cost you weeks of time and hundreds or thousands in lost rental income.
*** If you hire me to manage your Las Vegas Eviction, it is extremely important that you do NOT communicate with the tenant AT ALL after you've hired me. Direct the tenant to me. The most common reason an eviction case is lost is the owner communicated directly with the tenant and didn't tell me.
The most common reason for eviction in Las Vegas is unpaid rent. An approximate timeline when I handle the eviction process is as follows:
Day 1 - Post notice. This should generally occur on the 6th calendar day of the month for unpaid rent. Most tenants will pay or leave at this stage.
Day 10 - Eviction filing with courts. The tenant has 5 business days to vacate or file an answer with the courts so this is an approximate date. Local, state, national holidays and weekends do not count.
Day 16 - Approximate court date if the tenant files a response to request a court date. I will appear in court on your behalf to present the required documents and information. Provided nothing unusual happens, eviction is often granted at this time. If so, I will file a request with the constable's office to perform the lockout.
Day 20 - Approximate lockout date. Depending on the constable's schedule, this can be done as soon as the 2nd business day after eviction is granted. I will coordinate with the constable and a vendor to have the tenant removed and locks changed. I will video the procedure and the condition of the property at that time.
Note: If a tenant chooses to "fight", this process can be delayed. The tenant may file a "motion to stay" for $50 with the courts. Even if they win, they will typically only delay the process by a few more days. Some non-paying tenants will try to claim they aren't paying rent due to unrepaired damages, pests, etc. This does not work, if you know how to handle it! At the most, they may buy themselves a little more time. I am experienced with handling difficult evictions. I handle it efficiently and professionally through out.
