Landlord's Contact Information And Property Management
Q&A - Contact Info And Management
Is the landlord required to identify a property manager to the tenant?
At the start of the tenancy, the landlord must disclose to the tenant, in writing:
- The name and address of the person authorized to manage the rental property.
- The name and address of a person in Nevada who is authorized to receive notices (including lawsuits) for the landlord.
- The name and address of the corporation or person who owns the rental property.
- The telephone number of a responsible person who lives in Clark County (or within sixty miles of the rental property) who the tenant can call in case of emergency.
Alternatively, the landlord can post this information in the building's elevator or in two conspicuous places on the rental property (if there is no elevator). (NRS 118A.270.)
What if the property manager changes or gets fired?
The landlord must keep current all required disclosures of names, addresses, and telephone numbers. (NRS 118A.260(2).)
What if the landlord fails to identify a property manager?
If the landlord fails to disclose the required names, addresses, and telephone numbers to the tenant, any person who signs the lease is considered the landlord's agent and can:
- Receive notices, demands, and legal process (lawsuits) for the landlord, and
- Perform the landlord's duties under the lease and Nevada law.
Plus, if the landlord fails to give tenant the disclosures after the tenant demands them, the tenant can sue the landlord for any actual damages the tenant incurred or $25.00, whichever is more. (NRS 118A.410.)
