Information for Tenants:

Due to COVID-19 pandemic many federal and state agencies are providing relief to homeowners and tenants who are impacted . If you are a homeowner or tenant facing substantial financial burdens during this time, there are resources available to help keep you in your home.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has been ordered to suspend evictions from HUD-owned properties through May 1. See below for updates from Nevada jurisdictions regarding evictions:

  • Eviction proceedings have been suspended for at least 30 days in City of Sparks and Wadsworth.
  • The City of Reno Justice Court has suspended default evictions for 30 days, providing additional time for remote hearings to take place.
  • Chief judges in the Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson justice courts issued administrative orders suspending eviction proceedings for at least 30 days.

If you have concerns about being able to pay your rent, contact your landlord or management company to see what options are available. Many landlords are working with tenants on rent payment flexibility during the shutdown.

Information for Homeowners:

If you are a homeowner, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government issued guidance halting all evictions and foreclosure if a homeowner’s mortgage is insured or guaranteed by the federal government (such as by the Federal Housing Administration, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Housing Finance Administration, Fannie Mae, or Freddie Mac). 

If you know that your mortgage is owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, you may get more information by visiting:

If your home is not insured or guaranteed by a federal entity, it is likely that your mortgage is insured by a private organization/financial institution.  Many financial institutions have implemented guidelines to help homeowners affected by COVID-19.
