ACTION: Support Change to Nevada’s Unfair Eviction Laws and Support AB189

eviction-notice

Nevada has one of the speediest eviction processes in the US.  Especially in these hard economic times, tenants should be given a reasonable opportunity to get into compliance to avoid eviction or to find substitute housing if evicted.  AB189 is a good bill that would make the eviction process more fair and less biased toward landlords.

Problem: Property managers and landlords are conducting an email campaign opposing AB189 and overwhelming committee members.  We need to get calls and letters pointing out how Nevada’s pro-landlord laws hurt low and moderate income people.

Solution: AB189 will be heard this Friday in Assembly Judiciary.  Our lobbyists need your help describing how Nevada’s eviction process hurts the working poor.  We’ll face a room full of angry landlords, property managers and realtors screaming about these “deadbeats,” so action is needed now!

Action Needed: Email the members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee below and voice your support for AB189.  If you can testify contact Jon Sasser at jsasser@washoelegalservices.org or call his office direct line at 775- 785-5722 or cell at 775-745-2215.

    Members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee . Please do not pass AB189. My rentals are my source of income and also pays the water, garbage, sewer,and taxes. When renters live in my units w/o paying the rent, I still have to pay for those items for them and for myself. Landlords have to live too. I have not raised rents in 10 years because I want my renters to be able to pay. But, if they break the lease by misbehavior, I need the right to ask them to leave quickly so I don’t lose my long term renters.
