Nevada Rental Lease Agreements | Laws

The Nevada lease agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant in which the tenant agrees to pay the landlord at regular intervals in exchange for the use of residential or commercial space. Before signing on tenants, landlords will often conduct a background check to ensure that they can be relied on to pay their rent. Most agreements are for a one (1) year period with the option to renew, however, month-to-month or “at-will” leases can also be used.
