A: In Nevada, without a written lease, you may be classified as a tenant at will, subject to termination with a typical 30-day notice. If your work was linked to the owner's business, your living arrangement might be seen as a fringe benefit of employment, ending upon termination. There could be alternative classifications, such as a house sitter or shared housing arrangement, based on the agreement's terms.

Consider factors like the reason for leasing and the new tenant's move-in date. Documenting the work performed can strengthen your position in negotiations or legal proceedings.
