Making a Nebraska Eviction Notice

  • What is a Nebraska Eviction Notice or Notice to Quit?

    Landlords and property owners use Nebraska Eviction Notices for the purpose of advising a renter of future legal action if they are not able to pay their overdue rent, adhere to the agreed-upon terms and conditions of a lease, or leave the property as demanded. As a result of this official legal notice, you can exercise your rights, while giving your tenant time to resolve the issue before a certain deadline. That said, in some cases, there will be no resolution, and filing a complaint with the court is inevitable. Suitable for all types of residential property, our Eviction Notice for Nebraska can be used by any property owner with tenants in Bellevue, Lincoln, Omaha, and in all other cities within the Cornhusker State.

  • Can I legally evict a tenant for past-due rent in Nebraska?

    Generally speaking, the answer is yes. You can use a Nebraska Eviction Notice (specifically called a 7-Day Notice to Quit) to kick off the process. That said, as a result of the pandemic, a few limitations and protections have been established for tenants who can't pay rent. While the eviction moratorium was struck down by the United State Supreme Court at the federal level, the state of Nebraska is able to maintain its own standards for residential evictions. Stay up to date with the consult a local lawyer, if you are unsure.

  • Should a property owner use an Eviction Notice in Nebraska?

    If you wish to evict tenants from your rental property, you are required to always give them a Notice of Eviction. Here are some reasons why you might need one:

    • The tenant is continuously late to pay their rent or payments have fallen behind schedule
    • The tenant creates a nuisance or disturbs the quiet enjoyment of their neighbors
    • The tenant is using their unit illicitly
    • The tenant violates the no-pets policy of your rental agreement
    • The tenant gets a subletter in breach of the rental terms
    • The tenant has caused considerable damage to the unit

    Outside of these violations, a tenant generally may be evicted by their landlord for other reasons unrelated to their conduct, such as when the property owner needs to move in. Please note that the list presented above is not absolutely exhaustive and the legally acceptable reasons for evicting tenants can be different by city or municipality. If you've got any particular hesitations or questions with regard to Nebraska eviction laws, you can ask a lawyer.

  • What is typically required in a Nebraska Notice to Vacate?

    You can tap or click the "Make document" button to check out our Nebraska Eviction Notice sample. Generally speaking, the key details that you should plan to include in a Notice to Vacate for Nebraska are:

    • The address and description of your property
    • The legal name of each inhabitant
    • How much time the tenant has to address the situation
    • Which of the policies in the lease have not been upheld
    • How much of the rent is currently overdue (if applicable)

    If the tenants aren't at fault, you may want to provide more context. With the Rocket Lawyer document tool, you are able to implement more adjustments and edits, as well. You'll need to make sure that any policies and terms that you make note of are spelled out in the fully signed lease contract.

  • How do Nebraska eviction laws affect me as a property owner?

    Laws often change over time and the actual eviction process and restrictions can be somewhat complex for a first-timer. In some cases, there are different notice periods and other requirements based on what the reason is for the tenant's eviction and how long they have occupied the unit. As a result, it is recommended that all landlords consult an eviction lawyer when writing a Notice of Eviction to any tenant.

  • How much time does the Nebraska eviction process normally take from start to finish?

    The length of the eviction process for Nebraska renters will usually depend on the notice period required, along with the overall volume of lawsuits being held at the same time. Below, you'll find a basic overview of Nebraska notice periods:

    • Rent-related: 7-day notice
    • Rental contract violations: 14-day notice to fix the issue or 30 days to move out
    • No direct fault: 30-day notice

    When the notice period is over, the actual eviction can still take anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months. It is important to note that in certain types of housing, for instance where rent is subsidized by the government, the mandatory notice period may be even longer.

  • Do I need to work with an attorney when evicting someone in Nebraska?

    • Deliver it by hand
    • Use a third-party process server

Acting lawfully leading up to and throughout the eviction process will give you the best chance of removing tenants successfully under a court order.
