Governor Sisolak Announces End of COVID-19 Eviction and Foreclosure Moratorium

Snell & Wilmer

Snell & WilmerThe COVID-19 pandemic has devastated much of Nevada’s economy. In order to provide some relief to Nevada residents and businesses, on March 29, 2020, Governor Sisolak issued Declaration of Emergency Directive 008 (“Directive 008”),1 which among other things, prohibited residential and commercial evictions and foreclosure proceedings (the “Eviction and Foreclosure Moratorium”) until the earlier of termination of the state of emergency declared in Nevada on March 12, 2020 or termination by a subsequent emergency directive. On April 8, 2020, Governor Sisolak issued Declaration of Emergency Directive 013 (“Directive 013”),2 which among other things, provided that a violation of the Eviction and Foreclosure Moratorium “constitutes the use of coercion, duress, or intimidation in a transaction pursuant to NRS 598.0923(4).” NRS 598.0923(4) is a provision in Nevada’s Deceptive Trade Practice Act. Thus, it is clear that landlords and lenders could suffer serious consequences if they violate the Eviction and Foreclosure Moratorium.
