A Nevada attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for four weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal and the frustration in finding an attorney. It's no guarantee, but one option at this point could be to explore legal aid services or pro bono attorneys. Good luck

A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. At this point, you could reach out to local attorneys to discuss. A landlord-tenant attorney would probably be in the best position to advise about eviction. In terms of the cars, you already included Criminal Law for... Read more »

A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your question straddles two separate categories and I could only speak about the personal injury aspects. You mention that your breathing problems are documented. If you mean by medical records, those could be... Read more »

You have 10 days to file an appeal of a summary eviction action in Nevada. I recommend retaining counsel to help you navigate the appeal and comply with time and procedural requirements.

I am sorry you’ve been put in this situation. If she’s an adult you must follow the normal eviction procedures including timelines and notices.

You rent amount will be stated in the lease, along with the date that it become effective. New leases generally start at the expiration of the old lease, but the parties are generally free to negotiate for any date they want.

The agreement is likely worth less than the value of the paper upon which it was printed (or written in crayon - it does not sound like a very well thought out document). I would still be extremely careful in the way in which your son separates himself from this less than sophisticated landlord. I... Read more »

answered on Jul 7, 2019
Probably not. There are a few limited exceptions to the Fair Housing Act but, unless one of the exceptions applies, the ESA is not considered a pet and therefore should not affect your ability to have two pets.

The landlord can’t touch your possessions until he has been granted possession of the premises by the court. If he touches your stuff before then, you will have a cause of action against the landlord.

You may be able to cancel your lease under force majeure.
You also may be able to travel to Nevada for a short period to get all your stuff, but you may have to reguister with the Sheriff when there
Why did they charge us if we already took our names off the lease
answered on Apr 3, 2018
A lease is a contract. I don't know what you mean when you state that your names were taken off the lease. Unless the landlord agreed to amend the lease to remove you as tenants or unless the lease expired and you vacated, you are subject to its terms.

Suggest you contact a member of the Nevada Trial Lawyers Association who handles things like nursing home neglect. They give free consults. Generally, the landlord would not be under a duty to get the tenant help. I'm surprised they let it go that far, but I don't see a jury saying they... Read more »
This rule is so that they can extort money out of tenants and charge them or raise their rent. They do this every year when tenants get their energy assistance money. They try to take is from them. There are numerous trailers without the required fence and some use boards and and wood fencing.

The landlord controls the terms. They can say no pets., They can say no pets unless they are in a stainless steel enclosure. They can say what they want. Don't like it--move.

If he signed a lease for your residence, that could be different from a business property lease, but the ordinary rule is that contractual obligations are personal and do not extend to a non-signatory spouse.
