Legislation signed this year lets domestic-violence victims break leases without penalty to start life anew
The Nevada Legislature this year passed what is known as the “safe getaway law,” which allows for the early termination of rental agreements involving victims of domestic violence, under certain circumstances. The law seeks to unburden domestic-violence victims from a common financial worry — breaking a lease — that often serves as a barrier preventing their escape. Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores and Assemblyman Elliot Anderson, both D-Las Vegas, sponsored the bill, which won the Legislature’s approval, was signed into law by Gov. Brian Sandoval and went into effect July 1.

Wednesday, September 4, 2013
Backers of a controversial proposal that would allow eminent domain to be used to help refinance underwater home mortgages scored a small victory in June when the North Las Vegas City Council voted to allow the company behind the plan, Mortgage Resolution Partners, to begin surveying the local housing market.
