Nevada officials are offering more clarity on how a recently announced federal moratorium on evictions dovetails with a statewide moratorium extension Gov. Steve Sisolak announced a little over a week ago, including that it prevents more evictions of tenants whose leases have expired.
Home Means Nevada, an offshoot of Nevada’s Division of Business and Industry that runs programs focused on keeping people in their homes, issued a frequently asked questions flyer on Wednesday explaining who’s protected by the various eviction freezes.
Sisolak announced Aug. 31 that an eviction moratorium set to expire Sept. 1 would continue for another 45 days and prevent people from being booted from their homes on the basis that they weren’t paying rent. The state directive still allowed for evictions on other grounds, including “no cause” evictions when a tenant’s lease has expired and the renter is paying on a month-to-month basis, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
