Las Vegas Property Manager

Managing rental property in Las Vegas means staying on top of changing real estate laws. With the active real estate market and pandemic many Owners have been asking their Las Vegas Property Manager these questions:

1. What happens to a residential lease agreement when the property is sold during the lease term? Does it terminate or carry-over?
It depends! What does the lease say? Typically, a valid lease will transfer with the sale of the property “running with the land” and continue to apply to the successor owner unless stated otherwise. If the lease says that upon transfer, the lease terminates, then the current owner would follow the terms in the lease to properly effectuate that term.

2.  Can I mandate that all tenants be vaccinated?
Do you really want to open up this Pandora’s pithos? There are so many legal landmines to consider with this policy, from: proving the validity of a person’s word or vaccine card presented when there’s no central repository to cross-check, implications of HIPAA protections, ADA disability and religious discrimination claims, and the list goes on… It is a legitimate concern to protect property managers, maintenance workers, and other tenants but a policy that encourages rather than mandates vaccines is the best practice, together with other safety measures which we should all be familiar with by now, such as wearing proper masks in public common areas, keeping common areas ventilated, and encouraging six (6) feet of separation. For maintenance workers, wearing masks and other PPE before entering indoor areas of units, rescheduling nonemergency maintenance if the tenant reports confirmed COVID-19 or symptoms, and other established safety protocols identified by OSHA, the CDC, Nevada Health Response, and your local Association.

3.  Can I ask about a tenant’s criminal background?
Yes, but with great caution! It’s important that housing providers have policies and practices used to make housing decisions that are tailored to serve a substantial, legitimate, and nondiscriminatory interest, such as resident safety or the protection of property. The National Association of REALTORS® has created a nifty Do’s and Don’ts Table which should be reviewed beforehand:
