My family moved into a home in Las Vegas in July 2005. We had a rough start, financially, but discussed this with the landlord, and came to an agreement on how and when to pay the rent and security deposit. We have two issues....one is that the security deposit has been given to, and spent by the landlord for her personal bills. It was my understanding that this deposit is supposed to be put in a secure account and not used unless it is for repairs, etc after a tenant moves out. And second, our rent is due on the first, and this morning, 12-2, we had a 5-day pay or quit notice on our door. However, it has no date, and says on it that it must be notarized after being signed by the server, (in this case the land lord) and a witness....and that the tenant is supposed to sign the affidavit when it was served. There is no date, there is not witness signature, and there is no notary mark, signature, etc. Can anyone tell me if this is a legal notice when it is missing so many items? Any help is tremendously appreciated. Also, if I was served by post on my door today, Friday, when is my 5 days up to file an answer? The courthouse says that it is only judicial days that are counted, and that Sat & Sun don't count, and the day that service was made also doesn't count. So I am thinking that next Friday would be my deadline. Does this sound right? Thanks again!!
