How Do I Homestead My Reno Home?

One of my clients recently closed escrow on a Reno home and asked:

"How do I homestead my home and what protection will I have once completed?"

Clip Art Sign Papers

Homesteading your home is quite easy. All you need to do is complete a Declaration of Homestead form and record it with the county recorder in the county where your home is located. There is a small fee to process and notarize the declaration once you have completed it. If you live in Washoe County, the recorders office is located at 1001 E 9th Street, Building A, Suite 150, Reno NV 89520.

What is a homestead?

 A homestead declaration protects your home from being seized and sold in the event that a money judgment is entered against you in court. Nevada home owners who have filed a Declaration of Homestead are protected under the Homestead Act Of Nevada, NRS 115.

For most judgments against you, your home in Nevada is protected up to at least $550,000 of the equity you have in your home. You are protected against most judgments except if you have judgment against you  because:

  • You owe taxes on your home
  • You have a mortgage lien
  • You owe Child Support / Alimony
  • You have a mechanics lien

What kinds of properties are eligible?

  • Land, your house, things connected to the land (easements, gardens, fixtures)
  • Mobile Home (even if you don't own the land it sits on)
  • Condominium Unit

Who can declare a homestead?

You  must own your home to file a homestead declaration. It must be your primary residence, not a rental or investment property. It does not matter if you are married or single. Both or a single married person can file. In most cases, a trustee can file for a person living in the intended home.

 What happens if I sell my home once it has a homestead declaration filed?

Sparks Home

If after receiving a Declaration of Homestead for your home you must keep the information on the form current. If you move,  you must file for a new homestead. If you divorce, separate, become widowed or get a new loan, you will need to file a new declaration.  

If you own a home in Reno or Sparks, Nevada, you should consider filing a homestead declaration with the Washoe County Recorders Office

It is so easy to do and is such a valuable tool to help protect your home against creditors and could save you from having your home foreclosed on.

Terrie,

Great information.  Someone just asked me about this the other day and I had no idea what to tell him.  I'm still learning about the RE laws in Nevada.  I'll be sure to tell my neighbor exactly how - I'll print the information out and give it to him.

Thanks for the great post.

Terrie:  Tag you're it:  Go to my profile to read my post for an example but here's the rules:

Hi Terri...This is vital information for many Nevada residents in this economic climate.  Good job trying to spread the word.

Thanks Kate. I believe homeowners should take advantage of the this low cost way to keep the equity in their home safe should any unfortunate circumstance arise.

Hi Terrie, I'm a widower in the middle of a probate case.  My home is mine because I was married to my wife for the pass 10 years.  Probate is not over, battling with a wicked step child.  Question is this, should I run down and file a declaration of homestead on my own, or ask the court to do it?  Is the form a simple one for an older man?
