Funding

Nevada Officials Report Significant Funds Still Available in COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to reports, Nevada officials have announced that a large amount of federal funding made available to those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic is still available via the state’s CARES Housing Assistance Program, which launched last Monday.

Since the program began on July 20, it has received 3,085 applications from residents whose finances have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and are seeking assistance with remaining in their homes. Most of the people applying for rent assistance are asking for up to two or three months of back-rent to be paid to cover missed rent payments during the eviction moratorium.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread financial hardship in Nevada, with record unemployment numbers dominating the economy amid mandatory business closures and stay-at-home orders issued to halt the spread of the dangerous virus. And while cases of COVID had dropped to levels that saw these mandates being lifted, the long-term financial issues – coupled with a resurgence of positive cases – has left many facing the very real prospect of homelessness.

The rental assistance program is being run by the Nevada Housing Division and in coordination with Clark County Social Services, the Reno Housing Authority, and the Nevada Rural Housing Authority. In addition, a network consisting of 14 community not-for-profits is administering the program in Clark County.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak recently announced the rental assistance program, available to Nevada residents who are experiencing financial insolvency due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in the form of $30 million in federal CARES Act funding allocated to residential rental assistance, and an additional $20 million towards commercial rental assistance.

In order to apply for the rental assistance program, Nevada residents can visit housing.nv.gov. Successful applicants should begin seeing payments sent directly to their landlords over the course of the next two weeks, reports say. Funds will be dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Eviction Notice

Clark County Attempts to Set Up Eviction Protections, But Are They Reasonable to Landlords?

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to recent reports, Clark County officials are attempting to set up an ordinance that will offer a degree of protection to those facing losing their home or apartment in September, when a mandate by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak to prevent evictions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is set to expire Sept. 1.

However, critics are arguing that these proposed protections introduced last week may lean too far in favor of tenants, leaving landlords, who have also been suffering financially – as hundreds of thousands in the state have from the widespread economic damage caused by the pandemic – out in the cold.

The proposed ordinance, in part, would charge landlords with a misdemeanor if they discriminated against an individual by refusing to rent, negotiate, or make a property available to them on the basis of their source of income, or if they had a previous eviction on their record that was related to the pandemic.

Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones noted that the proposed ordinance was created in response to the financial hardship suffered by Las Vegas residents, many of whom have lost their jobs in light of mandatory stay-at-home orders issued by Governor Sisolak in order to curb the spread of COVID-19.

“Clark County is doing everything in its power to keep people in their homes,” he said. “We know that this is a difficult time so we want to take every action that we can.”

Part of this ordinance stems from a rental assistance program that Clark County is planning on rolling out; officials have said that some landlords may be reluctant to rent to potential tenants receiving assistance from the program, fearing the sigma that Section 8 housing programs often bring with them.

Shanta Patton, a regional vice president of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, noted that she does not support any ordinance that does not allow a landlord their right to make a decision on who to rent to based on a background check that would include a tenant’s income source and eviction history.

The ordinance is expected to be publicly heard Aug. 4.

$50 Million in Federal Coronavirus Relief Funds to be Made Available to Las Vegas Renters Facing Eviction

LAS VEGAS, NV – For renters in the Las Vegas area that are behind on their rent thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and a looming eviction date threatening to see them put out on the street, good news is potentially coming in the form of relief funds from Nevada state.

According to reports, $50 million in federal coronavirus relief funds via the Nevada State Treasurer’s office are to be made available to renters facing eviction on September 1 when Governor Steve Sisolak’s extended moratorium on residential evictions and foreclosures is due to end.

Previously, Sisolak’s moratorium, enacted on March 29 as a response to widespread unemployment and economic hardship brought about by the pandemic, was due to come to an end on June 30. However, as that end date approached, Sisolak made an amendment- instead of ending at the end of June, the moratorium will be lifted in phases over the course of the summer, with residential evictions finally allowed to fully resume on September 1.

With numerous landlords already preparing paperwork for the mass evictions expected to begin at the start of September, the Nevada State Treasurer’s office announced this week the availability of federal relief funds to help qualified individuals to remain in their homes. The $50 million will be divided into two categories – residential tenants will have access to a $30 million pool, and commercial tenants, $20 million.

Applicants would have to meet income qualifications and would have to have lost their employment due to COVID-related issues. In addition, applicants cannot receive Federal Housing Vouchers and the liquid resources of the entire household must not exceed $3,000.

According to reports, residents of Clark County will be able to apply for the federal coronavirus relief funds within the next week; in addition, tenants who are behind on their rent are encouraged to work with their landlords on a method and timetable of repayment of back monies owed. Landlords seeking back rent, on the other hand, would do well to inform their tenants of the federal relief program if they are unaware of it.

How Small Landlords Are Hurt by Eviction Moratoriums

LAS VEGAS, NV – Time Magazine recently did an article on how Eviction Moratoriums – much like the one issued by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – can be especially harmful to small, “mom and pop” landlords who may own only one or two small rental properties.

With a shutdown mandated by Governor Sisolak on all businesses deemed to be “non-essential” putting many people temporarily out of work, the majority of Nevada residents were facing evictions or foreclosures amid extreme financial hardship. However, the Governor’s moratorium disallowed lockouts, notices to quit or pay, or eviction filings while the state of emergency was in effect. The moratorium also waived all late fees throughout the emergency period.

The moratorium was originally due to end June 30, and landlords were lining up to begin eviction proceedings for a slew of delinquent tenants. However, late last week Sisolak extended that moratorium for specific circumstances. But in the meantime, the landlords of those properties – many of whom have not been receiving income since March – are struggling themselves, and the smaller the landlord, the more difficult the struggle.

A good example of how especially difficult moratoriums can be for small landlords can be summed up in the story of Greta Arceneaux, as chronicled in the above-linked Time article. Arceneaux was a divorcee with two children facing grim financial prospects in 1960’s Los Angeles when she got a loan, demolished her own home, and built a five-unit rental complex upon the land. The gambit worked – she had developed a steady income that lifted her and her family out of poverty and into the middle-class for many years… until COVID-19 hit, that is.

While the Nevada moratorium has proved to be a hardship for many landlords state-wide – especially in light of its recent extension – Los Angeles’ has been even more restrictive to property owners, with tenants being allowed up to 12 months to repay their back rent – without any late fees attached – from the end of the city’s emergency declaration. For some, like Arceneaux, this is an insurmountable obstacle thrown in her path during an already difficult period. She has reportedly been saddled with $15,000 in unpaid rent, in addition to having to maintain the apartment complex with money right out of her own pocket. In addition, she is also bound by new state building codes that require earthquake prevention reinforcement in her building, a decree that stands to set her back $60,000 or more. At this point, her retirement is being threatened.

While she feels for her tenants who have lost jobs and are facing economic crises themselves, Arceneaux is also struck by the unfairness of her situation. While it is unfortunate that her tenants may be facing hardships, why is she being forced to shoulder their misfortunes in addition to her own? And on top of that, the number of people looking to move into an apartment during a pandemic is low; while a large complex can get by with a few vacancies here and there, it’s a far more difficult prospect for a small-time landlord with only four or five units.

This is an issue that is currently plaguing a great many Americans in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, as many cities and states have passed similar moratoriums. According to the 2015 American Housing Survey, roughly half of the rental market in the U.S. is run by large companies; the remainder are run by individuals and normally consist of homes and small complexes, like the type owned by Arceneaux. But while large companies often can benefit from funding provided by the CARES Act, smaller landlords typically cannot.

Many city and state governments are encouraging landlords to work out payment plans with their delinquent tenants, but for many who have invested their life savings into their properties and are losing money each and every month they are denied rent, such an arrangement can certainly seem unfair. If governments force this burden upon property owners, they should be prepared to assist them financially.

Eviction Letter

Sisolak: Nevada Evictions Can Begin July 1 for Commercial Properties, August 1 for Some Residential Properties

LAS VEGAS, NV – Since the beginning of April, Nevada residents whose finances have been negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have been offered a safety net against eviction by a moratorium issued by state Governor Steve Sisolak. However, that moratorium is due to cease July 1 for commercial properties and August 1 for ‘some’ residential properties (certain causes – see directive 025 below); experts are anticipating a slew of evictions to follow soon afterwards. Those who have not been able to pay as the coronavirus pandemic began have until Sept. 1 or risk eviction.

The above document has been combined for simple reading, to see the original three page document click here (nvhealthresponse.nv.gov).

With a shutdown mandated by Governor Sisolak on all businesses deemed “non-essential,” many Nevada residents found themselves out of work. For those barely scraping by paycheck-to-paycheck, looming evictions and/or foreclosures have become a very real possibility. However, with the Governor’s moratorium in place, these residents have been protected by disallowed lockouts, a cease on notices to quit or pay, as well as no legal eviction filings during the state of emergency.

“We’ve now reached a point where tens of thousands of Nevadans are wondering how they’re going to make rent or pay their mortgage,” Sisolak said at the time. “These are good, hard-working people who are just looking for one of the most basic and essential necessities: a roof over their heads. This is not the time to put people out on the streets. This is also not the time to evict small business owners who have been hit hard by the economic fallout of this pandemic.”

In addition to those directives, the moratorium also waives all late fees throughout the emergency period; once the emergency is officially over, Sisolak noted that any landlords that are owed back-rent by their tenants should work with them on devising a repayment plan. And, as of the released dates, that period of emergency will end as Nevada continues the process of reopening its economy.

While Sisolak’s decree was a boon for many working-class people who were experiencing financial hardships due to the pandemic, equally put upon were landlords who were denied income for months yet still expected to provide essential services for their tenants, such as utilities and repairs…even if they were not paying rent.

Adding to frustration is the fact that some tenants were receiving stimulus checks and unemployment checks, yet were opting to take advantage of Sisolak’s moratorium by not using those funds to pay their rent, something that the Governor acknowledged in a recent interview.

“I’ve got landlords that are telling me that there are individuals who are clearly taking advantage of it in a way that was not intended and that was never what we wanted to do,” he said. “We’re taking advice on that from landlords who have spoken up and we’re listening.”

Some attorneys representing landlords are encouraging their clients to work with delinquent tenants on payment plans in lieu of immediate evictions in an effort to avoid a slew of empty properties come August / September.

“It is just as imperative today as it was when I signed the original directive to allow Nevadans to stay home and stay safe as much as possible, while also providing clarity and a timeline in which rental obligations must be met,” Sisolak said in his latest statement Thursday evening.

Vacation Rental

Amid COVID-19, More Travelers Turning to Home Rental Getaways for Socially-Distant Vacationing

LAS VEGAS, NV – Despite the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak winding down in some respects and states across the country starting the reopening of their local economies, the specter of the pandemic – and the possibility of an eventual resurgence – will continue to shape American’s vacation plans for some time to come.

According to a recent report, due to this “new normal” that we are all living in, many people who have been enduring home quarantines and are itching to get away from it all – yet still to maintain social distancing and safety guidelines – are turning to vacation home rentals this summer, with Las Vegas being one of the most popular destinations in question.

Reports also indicate that the vacation home rental industry is changing to meet these new times. Mainly used for short-terms stays of a few days, many are now encountering increased demand from clients who are looking to stay longer than usual – average stays have increased from a few days to as long as a month – after having been cooped up in their own homes for the last several months. In addition, new cleanliness and sanitation guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 are ensuring that landlords will make sure their properties are in full compliance to keep their renters safe.

The appeal of a vacation home rental is that it is possible to maintain a degree of social distancing that normally is not possible to do in a large and crowded hotel resort. These people are often on the lookout for large properties with plenty of amenities – such as a pool or a fire pit – that are adjacent to attractions that they can visit safely, such as the famed Las Vegas Strip, which is currently in the process of reopening for business after being shut down during the height of the pandemic.

The hotel industry has been one of the hardest-hit by the pandemic, not expected to fully recover until late 2022, but records show that the home rental industry – led by companies such as Airbnb and Vrbo – have continued to receive bookings thanks to people afraid to travel to crowded regions but desperate to get away in some form. Labor Day bookings of vacation homes, in fact, were reported to be comparable to last year’s figures, according to Airbnb and Vrbo.

Man Thinking

Renters In Las Vegas Growing Increasingly Desperate Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

LAS VEGAS, NV – With the coronavirus pandemic taking its toll upon the Las Vegas economy, there remains some light at the end of the tunnel as the Strip is set to reopen this Thursday. While that is good news for most, some renters who have been laid off or furloughed are still awaiting financial relief in the form of unemployment benefits and they are growing increasingly desperate despite the rental market itself managing to weather the storm, according to reports.

Leading up to the pandemic, which has brought the national economy to a near-standstill, the Las Vegas real estate market was skyrocketing after nearly a decade of dormancy due to the mid-2000’s recession. Construction was rampant, housing was scarce, and rents were rising. When the pandemic hit, real estate was one of the few industries allowed to continue to conduct business, albeit with numerous alterations to increase safety. And while the market certainly took a dive, it did not collapse, and experts are expecting a potentially speedy return to business as usual once restrictions are lifted.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak had mandated that all non-essential businesses close in March to help curb the spread of the coronavirus; he also introduced a temporary freeze on eviction and foreclosure proceedings amid rising unemployment statistics, with the number of those without jobs in the state hitting 28.2 percent.

However, that isn’t making things any easier by renters struggling to meet their monthly payments; according to Nevada HAND, a Southern Nevada organization that operates approximately 4,200 apartment units, there has been a significant increase in the number of individuals requesting help in paying their rent. Overall, however, Nevada HAND noted that the number of tenants that have not made their rental payments is not unusually high, possibly due to furloughed or laid off employees receiving severance or other assistance from their employers.

Shelter Realty, which manages over 500 single family homes, townhomes and condos has had 94.2% of their Las Vegas tenants pay their rent in full for both April and March. In addition, property management company TruAmerica Multifamily, which owns and runs over 5,500 apartments in Las Vegas, also said that a great many of their tenants – 86.4 percent – are still paying the rent on-time, despite some Southern Nevada residents facing delays in obtaining their unemployment benefits. Reports indicate that low-wage workers, including those who work minimum-wage jobs or who might not have adequate savings, are suffering worse than others that were more financially sound at the time that the pandemic hit.

Rental Search

Apartment Rent in Las Vegas Lowering During Coronavirus Pandemic

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to recent reports, apartment rental rates in Las Vegas have shown some degree of lowering amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and once the summer hits, prospective renters could expect to see that trend continue. Typically, in the summer season, rents in Vegas tend to grow, but the circumstances surrounding the pandemic are unprecedented, experts are saying. Amid stay-at-home orders and governmental mandates that non-essential businesses must remain closed in order to curb the spread of the coronavirus, many Southern Nevada residents are finding themselves embroiled in mass unemployment and with limited financial means.

With that being the case, many local landlords and property management companies are finding themselves forced to curtail rent increases, or in some instances, even rolling them back to a degree. The Nevada State Apartment Association notes that rental increases in the region are typically 6 to 7 percent annually; however, this year, it has actually gone down by a half percent so far.

If the current pandemic continues to cause economic havoc in Las Vegas, the rate of rental vacancy is expected to increase as some residents are forced to move back home or in with friends; while stimulus checks and unemployment insurance is currently helping those out of work make rent, this is only a temporary solution, many say, and more assistance is needed.

Las Vegas has begun the early stages of re-opening its economy, with a limited number of restaurants being allowed to open their doors for business under strict social distancing and sanitary guidelines. However, it is currently not known when the Vegas business scene will be allowed to fully reopen, or how long it will take the city to recover from the economic damage the lock-down – in effect since late March – has wrought.

In addition, some desperate local businesses have announced their intention to reopen against Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s orders, risking fines and jail time. However, experts are saying that it will not take long, once Las Vegas is back in business, for the economy to recover and the rental market to begin to trend upward once again.

Couple Sitting Talking

North Las Vegas Landlords Who Violate COVID-19 Emergency Orders Now Facing Fines, License and Permit Revocation

LAS VEGAS, NV – The North Las Vegas City Council recently unanimously voted at an emergency meeting to pass an ordinance allowing fines and other penalties to be imposed upon landlords and property managers who are in violation of state and city emergency anti-eviction decrees.

Amid the state of emergency brought on by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak had issued a statewide moratorium on March 29 against evictions, citing the economic issues faced by residents in light of strict business closure and stay-at-home orders. But some landlords have nonetheless defied that decree and have locked out and/or evicted tenants who have been behind on their rent.

The eviction decree by Governor Sisolak applies to all renters in the state of Nevada, be they monthly or weekly, residential or commercial, and applies while the state of emergency is still in effect; in addition, all late fees for back rent during the emergency period are waved. However, the non-eviction order does not apply to individuals who pose a threat to either their property or to others.

The moratorium had a mixed response, with some legal advocates supporting the move while others supported landlords and property managers, noting that they also have their own bills to pay throughout the crisis.

The North Las Vegas City Council, on a vote of 5 to 0, approved an ordinance that will seek penalties imposed upon anyone who violates Governor Sisolak’s decree – or any similar decrees issued by the city of Las Vegas – including fines in the amount of up to $1,000 a day as well as the potentially revoking the businesses licenses and permits.

In addition, according to Councilman Isaac Barron, misdemeanor charges resulting in jail sentences up to six months could also be imposed upon violators. The new rule went into effect immediately following the council’s vote, meaning that enforcement could start right away. “The goal, very specifically, is to stop a handful of bad-actor landlords and property managers from locking people out for failure to make rent,” he said.

Nevada Attorney General Ford Announces $2 Million in Emergency Funding for Rental Assistance

CARSON CITY, NV – Yesterday, April 7, 2020, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford announced $2 million in settlement funding for emergency rental assistance transferred to United Way of Southern Nevada and United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra. This funding will go directly to Nevada families in need of emergency assistance. Additionally, the Attorney General’s Office created an informational flyer (below) on the Governor’s Directive halting evictions to help renters and landlords understand their rights.

“One of the most important things we can do as state leaders and as human beings is to keep Nevada families in their homes and prevent further suffering,” said AG Ford. “Every minute, another Nevada family calls my office for help so they won’t end up homeless. I am immensely proud that my office is able to prevent wrongful evictions, as well as provide emergency rental assistance funding to our trusted community partners at United Way.”

The funding is part of the previously announced settlement agreement with Wells Fargo. The transfer of the funding received approval from the Nevada State Legislature’s Interim Finance Committee Tuesday morning.

United Way of Southern Nevada and United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra are the state’s administering agencies for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program established by Congress in 1983. This additional funding from the Office of the Attorney General will supplement that program until the next set federal appropriation is released next fall. The funding will help thousands of Nevada families stay in stable housing and prevent a further crisis of homeless families in the state.

The Office of the Attorney General has received an unprecedented number of calls from constituents seeking help and information relating to eviction and rental issues. The attached informational flyer on the Governor’s Directive is intended to help renters and landlords understand their rights and obligations during the State of Emergency and answer frequently asked questions.

Eviction Notice Stock

Despite Nevada Governor Issuing Eviction Freeze, Some Landlords Continue to Lock Out Tenants

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to reports, despite a statewide moratorium issued by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak against evictions during the state of emergency brought on by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, some landlords have defied that decree and have locked out and/or evicted tenants who have been behind on their rent.

The eviction decree by Governor Sisolak applies to all renters in the state of Nevada, monthly or weekly, and applies while the state of emergency is still in effect. The moratorium had a mixed response, with some legal advocates supporting the move while others supported landlords and property managers, noting that they also have their own bills to pay throughout the crisis.

But despite the moratorium, reports indicate that some landlords are disregarding it and are continuing to issue eviction notices and, in some cases, outright lock tenants out of their residences, especially in cases of rent-by-the-week apartments and homes.

Nevada Legal Services report that they have received an elevated number of phone calls from tenants who are facing eviction despite the non-eviction decree from Governor Sisolak. Some are complaining that the exact nature of their rights in these circumstances have not been made clear as well.

“There’s just so many violations, you would think it were a movie” a representative of the Nevada Legal Services was quoted as saying. “You hear about these things and expect that everyone will just follow the rules, but there are illegal lockouts happening left and right.”

Violations reported by Nevada Legal Services allegedly include eviction notices still being served, landlords stacking plywood in their parking lots in order to board up apartments, and hired security guards harassing non-rent paying tenants. The Nevada state attorney general’s office notes that landlords and property managers who disobey the ongoing non-eviction rule could face legal action, including being sued for deceptive trade practices, although the office has stated that lawsuits are a last resort due to the financial strain that landlords state-wide are also going through.

Hilton Resorts Lobby

Las Vegas Strip Slated to be Home to Returning Hilton-Branded Hotel

LAS VEGAS, NV – The Vegas Strip is set to welcome back a seasoned player in the hotel game, and one of the most iconic brands in the business. According to recent reports, McLean-based Hilton is slated to open a massive mega-resort – comprised of three hotels – that will potentially add up to one of the biggest multi-brand deals in the company’s existence.

The original Las Vegas Hilton, an enormous resort, opened in 1971 and was located just one block from the Strip at 3000 S Paradise Road until the company’s property management services ended in 2012. However, now the brand is set to return to the Strip in a big way, with a $4.3 billion investment in a sprawling new hotel complex – opening in partnership with Resorts World Las Vegas – that is anticipated to open its doors for business in the summer of 2021.

The hotels, which will be operated under Hilton Hotels & Resorts, LXR and Conrad brands, will offer up a number of amenities for guests, spread out amongst a grand total of 3,500 rooms between the three hotels, and spread out over 88 acres of land. The complex will also feature 350,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, a 5,000-seat theater, and a 220,000 square foot pool complex with seven pools, a spa and fitness center.

The original Las Vegas Hilton – from 1981 to 1990, considered the largest hotel on the planet at 2,956 rooms on 65 acres – was lauded for its posh nature and the large number of celebrities that resided there; of special note was famous rock-and-roller Elvis Presley, who famously owned a penthouse on the hotel’s 30th floor. The original Las Vegas Hilton is now branded as the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino, owned by Westgate Resorts and operated by Paragon Gaming.
