INTERVENTION AFFIDAVIT INSTRUCTIONS
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY. The Intervention Affidavit process
is a service of the Real Estate Division to help people resolve disputes regarding Nevada common-interest communities
and their boards of directors. The process includes three possible steps:
1. Participation in the Ombudsman’s conference, where if both parties are willing, the Ombudsman may request a
conference providing a neutral setting in an attempt to resolve the issues through mutual agreement;
2. If the issues involve possible violations of state law, the affidavit and file may be referred to the Compliance
3. If the alleged violations are substantiated, the Division may file a formal complaint for disciplinary action by the
Commission of Common-Interest Communities and Condominium Hotels.
The Commission for Common-Interest Communities and Condominium Hotels or a hearing panel may impose an
administrative fine of not more than $1,000 against any person who knowingly files a false or fraudulent affidavit
with the Division.
To begin the process, it is essential to complete ALL of the following steps:
1. Before submitting the Intervention Affidavit, you are required to contact the person or persons with whom you
have a dispute via a written notice sent to their last known address. In the written notice you must describe the
(a) any alleged violations, (b) any damages that resulted from the alleged violation, and
(c) any proposed corrective action to resolve the alleged violation
The written notice must be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested only. No other method of delivery
will be accepted by the Division as mandated by Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 116.760(2). You must allow a
reasonable amount of time for a response regarding the allegations.
2. If after contacting the person a resolution is not reached, you may complete the Intervention Affidavit form and
submit it to the Office of the Ombudsman no later than one (1) year after discovery of the alleged violation
(or after the alleged violation should have reasonably been discovered). You should also reference any applicable
statutes regarding the alleged violation. Any allegation that was not indicated in the written notice and not listed
on page 4 of the affidavit cannot be discussed during the conference with the Ombudsman, investigated by the
Compliance section, or considered by the Commission for disciplinary action.
3. You must sign the affidavit in the presence of the notary and the affidavit must then be notarized by the notary
4. You must provide a copy of the certified written notice of which the certified return receipt must be stapled to the
written notice for verification. References to e-mails, phone conversations and other communications are not
acceptable evidence of notification. Again, only those allegations mentioned in the affidavit and in the letter to
the respondent will be considered by the Division. Please provide only pertinent attachments to support the
allegations listed in the affidavit.
5. You can mail or hand deliver the completed affidavit package to:
NEVADA REAL ESTATE DIVISION, OFFICE OF THE OMBUDSMAN
2501 E. SAHARA AVE., SUITE 205, LAS VEGAS, NV 89104
The intervention affidavit process has multiple steps and may take several weeks, so if you wish to utilize the
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program, ( ) or other action in the interim, please do not
delay in doing so.
