A: In Nevada, landlords are typically required to provide tenants with proper notice before requiring them to vacate a property. If you have a written lease agreement, the terms of that lease should be honored until its expiration. If you're on a month-to-month tenancy, the landlord should provide at least 30 days' notice before ending the tenancy. If they sold the property, the new owner would generally need to honor existing leases. Immediate eviction without proper notice can be considered unlawful. It would be advisable to gather all documentation, including your lease agreement, and discuss your situation with an attorney specializing in landlord-tenant law. In the meantime, you may also consider reaching out to local housing authorities or tenant rights organizations in Reno for guidance and support.
