The Eviction Process In Las Vegas, Nevada
The Eviction Process Made Easy
The evicting a tenant in Las Vegas can seem daunting and we strive to make the process as quick and hassle-free as possible.
APM Tenant Management will handle the timely preparation and service of all legally appropriate eviction notices, as well as
the prompt filing of notarized affidavit submissions. All legal and eviction matters are handled in full compliance with Nevada's tenant /
landlord statutory regulations and requirements, as well as any applicable HOA regulations.
Step 1: Service of Lease Violation & Unlawful Detainer Notices:
The eviction process begins with the service of the appropriate lease violation notice that legally informs your tenants that they are in violation of
their lease agreement.
Once the required amount of time has passed and they have not come into compliance we follow up with the appropriate Unlawful Detainer Notice and the summary eviction process begins.
Step 2: Filing of The Eviction Order:
After the date on the lease violation notice has passed we will prepare and file the eviction documents in the appropriate jurisdiction
and seek a Judge's approval for an eviction.
We will deliver the instructions to the Constable's office once the eviction
has been approved by the Court.
Step 3: Service of the Eviction Order:
The Eviction Notice will be posted the next business day after court approval and we will lock-out your property the following business day. Locks must be changed at the time the deputy puts the seal on the door.
If you need assistance in contacting a locksmith we have a locksmith that we work with. Deputy will arrange a time between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. the day of the scheduled lock-out to
set-up a time to meet.
If Judge orders eviction, immediately bring Instructions to Constable's Office and pay lock-out fee. Order will be posted the next business day after
we receive it and lock-out the day after posting.
If Judge gives tenant a day and time to pay or vacate, let us know and we will contact the court. At that time ask them to
forward the order to Constable's Office.
Step 4: Property Lock-Out:
The Eviction Notice will be posted the next business day after court approval and we will lock-out your property the following business day.
Locks must be changed at the time the deputy puts the seal on the door.
Deputy will arrange a time between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. the day of the scheduled lock-out to

Other Eviction Related Matters & Services
Contested Evicitons - Motions To Stay Eviction by Tenant
The Court does not contact the Landlord if the Tenant contests. It is up to the Landlord to search the Justice Court Public Access
site to see if the Tenant contested the Eviction Notice. If the Tenant contested, then the Landlord will need to file on the Tenant's
Case that was initiated for the contested Eviction Notice. If the Tenant contested the Eviction after the Landlord files (Tenant files
Motion to Stay), then the Landlord will need to check the status of the Motion to Stay the Justice Court Public Access website to see
what decision the Judge has rendered on the Motion to Stay. If you have questions regarding this matter, contact Justice Court at
(702) 671-3478. If Justice Court informs you to file your paperwork, you will need to come to Constable's Office to pick-up a copy
of your NOTICE to take to Justice Court for filing. Justice Court fee is $71.00. You DO NOT need to return to our office until after your court date.
It is suggested, if someone moves out, go ahead with the eviction process to avoid any problems that may arise if tenant tries to move back in.
Cancel Eviction / Tenant Paid
When deputy calls to follow-up with the lock-out, inform him that tenant has paid and no eviction will be necessary.
Constable's Office can not accept cancellation of evictions over the telephones or fax.
Order to Rescind
Order to rescind must be done in Justice Court then brought to Constable's Office for lock-out fees refund. Order must be in this office the day before
action is to be taken or Constable's Office will be unable to refund.
If posting has already been done and you file order to rescind the day before lock-out, only one-half of the refund will be issued (8-12 weeks for refund).
Storing Tenant's Possessions
When an eviction is completed, the Landlord must store the tenants property for 30 days. They may not charge back rent,
but can charge a reasonable storage fee. The tenant has to make arrangements with the Landlord to pick up their property.
The Landlord has to notify the tenant in writing, prior to the last 14 days by CERTIFIED MAIL, that he is disposing the property after the time has lapse.
Tenant's Unclaimed Posessions.
You are liable for their belongings for 30 days from day of lock-out. You may charge a reasonable storage fee, but cannot hold the property for the rent that was due.
If you choose, you may contact a storage company to have tenant's property inventoried.
