Governor Steve Sisolak has enacted a two-month renters extension to Nevada’s eviction moratorium, that was initially scheduled to expire today, March 31st. At the same time the Governor said there will be no extensions past the end of May.
The federal Center for Disease Control announced the extension of the federal evictions moratorium on Monday. The goal of Nevada’s extension is to allow counties and courts to offer faster help with eviction mediation or rental assistance when “move-out” notices are filed against the renters.
Governor Sisolak said “Our State is currently going through a difficult transition period as we continue to navigate the ever-evolving pandemic and subsequent crises. Kids are back in school, we are in the process of transitioning renter negotiation authority to local governments and people are heading back to their workplaces. We must transition out of our eviction moratorium but do it in a way that protects tenants and landlords to the greatest extent possible.”
