2015 Nevada Legislative Update:

  • $1,000,000,000 budget deficit.
  • SB 252- (Governor’s Tax Plan) has passed out of committee. This would impose a business license fee based off company’s gross revenue. Our lobbying team does not believe it will get the 2/3 of the votes for passage.
  • AB 745- increase taxes and licensing fees. Licensees give a $2.2 million net surplus to the general fund. NVAR opposes these fees.
  • AB 201- Eminent Domain Legislation – Prevents the use of eminent domain to seize mortgage notes- has passed out of committee and should go up for a full vote soon.
  • SB 306- First Security Liens/ HOA Extinguishments-
    •  Orderly process of noticing when HOA attempts to exercise super priority right
    • Sets out a judicial foreclosure process
    • FHFA has weighed in and is sending an official to testify.
    • VA has said it will not lend.
    • Most important bill of the session for real estate agents.
  • SB 260- Impound Accounts
    • Would require banks to create impound accounts for HOA dues.
    • Banks are saying “NO”. They will stop lending in Nevada because their systems are not set up for monthly papers.
  • SB 224- Independent Contractors Bill-
    • Key for Realtors is each agent having a state business license.
