Las Vegas (FOX5)-Ryan McConnell is a lawyer for the Consumer Rights Project at the Legal Aid Center in Southern Nevada.
His focus was on landlord and tenant issues, and the FOX5 interview focused on the rising rents taking place in the valley.
Basically, there is no law that prevents the landlord from raising the rent to the extent that it seems appropriate, but there are some things that tenants should and should be aware of to ensure that the landlord is in compliance with the law. ..
McConnell’s advice to lessors who are struggling with large-scale renewals is to be proactive. Contact the landlord, remind them how great the tenants were, and tell them how much they can afford and how to maintain the relationship.
Remind the landlord that the next tenant may not be that great.
McConnell says landlords must obey new laws that some are unaware of. If you are in monthly debt, the landlord must notify you 60 days in advance. This is a new law passed in the last session. It used to be 45 days. For weekly rentals, the landlord must notify 30 days in advance.
According to McConnell, rent increases are fairly widespread and do not target poor areas where people may have to pay due to lack of resources to travel.
He believes that the market will naturally modify as more people are forced to move. He hopes that as more people move to Nevada, the shortage of affordable housing will be resolved.
