Dear Homeowner ,

We hope this brief summary of the Nevada Homestead Law will be of assistance to you. If you
have any legal questions regarding your Declaration of Homestead, please consult your attorney.


              M. W. SCHOFIELD
              Clark County Assessor

                                   What The Law Provides

When you record a Declaration of Homestead, Nevada law protects the equity in your home up
to $125,000. This protection precludes seizure or forced sale of your residence by general
creditor claims (unpaid medical bills, bankruptcy, charge card debts, business/personal loans,
accidents). A creditor may file suit and can record a judgement lien against any real property
you own. Recording a Declaration of Homestead protects your principal residence up to the
statutory maximum. For Example, if the value of your home is $145,000 and you have a first
mortgage of $85,000 plus a second mortgage of $10,000, the equity is $50,000.

                                    What Is Not Protected

The Homestead Law does not protect you against debts secured by a mortgage or deed of trust,
payment of taxes, IRS lien, mechanic’s lien, child support or alimony payments.

                    Procedure For Recording Declaration of Homestead

       1. Complete the Homestead Declaration form.
       2. Sign in the presence of a Notary Public.
       3. Take or mail the completed document to:

                                   Clark County Recorder
                               500 S. Grand Central Pky 2 nd Fl
                                      P.O. Box 551510
                                Las Vegas, NV 89155-1510

       4. The recording fee is $7.00.

The Recorder’s Office does not review homestead forms for legality; recording the declaration is
NOT a guarantee that is has been done correctly.
