      Whereas, In order to make water available for an expanding population and at the same time to utilize the ground water basin in such a manner that this vital resource will continue to be available to the greatest possible extent to the area, studies must be made to serve as the basis for recommendations for consideration by the state engineer and the Las Vegas Valley ground water board regarding the location and proper spacing of new wells in order to avoid undue pumping interference and to permit the continuous extraction of the greatest permissible quantities of ground water; and

      Whereas, Such study utilizing the technical resources of the Desert Research Institute of the University of Nevada was commenced in July 1962 by the state department of conservation and natural resources; now, therefore,

The total sum of such cash and balances due shall not be less than 10 percent of demand deposits and 5 percent of time deposits for the preceding 15 days. When a bank has pledged securities for the protection of public funds under the provisions of NRS 356.020, the superintendent of banks may, in his discretion, waive the reserve requirements on the amount of the public deposit.

CHAPTER 92

AN ACT to amend chapter 321 of NRS, relating to the administration, control and sale of public lands, by adding new sections providing for the confirmation of title to minerals in persons, corporations or associations, or their heirs, assigns or lawful successors who have purchased state lands subsequent to March 3, 1887, from the State of Nevada, subject to the royalty provisions in NRS section 321.300; authorizing such persons, corporations or associations, or their heirs, assigns or lawful successors, to bring an action for declaratory judgment to determine the state’s interest in the minerals in such lands, including gas, coal, oil and oil shales; providing that if the state is determined to have any interest in such minerals, other than the royalty interest referred to in NRS section 321.300, the patentee, his, her or its heirs, successors or assigns may purchase such interest of the state within 1 year from the date of such judgment; and providing other matters properly relating thereto.

 

[Approved March 20, 1963]

 

      Whereas, The legislature of the State of Nevada by chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, as amended by Chapter 35, Statutes of Nevada 1897, disclaimed any interest in mineral lands selected by the State of Nevada prior to or after March 3, 1887, on account of any grant from the United States and provided further by such act that every contract, patent or deed made by the state after March 3, 1887, should contain a provision expressly reserving all mines of gold, silver, copper, cinnabar and other valuable minerals that might exist in such land, and further provided that all persons desiring to acquire titles to mines upon lands which had been selected by the state should obtain such title from the United States under the laws of the Congress, notwithstanding such selection by the State of Nevada; and

      Whereas, Such portions of chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, as amended by chapter 35, Statutes of Nevada 1897, as above set forth, were incorporated in Nevada Revised Statutes in 1957 as NRS 516.020; and

      Whereas, By chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, the State of Nevada made the declaration that the several grants made by the United States to the State of Nevada reserved the mineral lands, and the sales of such lands made by the state were made subject to such reservation and such declaration was incorrect; and

      Whereas, The state by chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, further provided that any citizen of the United States or person having declared his intention to become a citizen of the United States might enter upon any mineral lands in this state notwithstanding the state’s selection, and explore for gold, silver, copper, lead, cinnabar and other valuable minerals and upon the discovery of such valuable mineral might work and mine the same in pursuance of the local rules and regulations of miners and the laws of the United States, and thereafter such person might condemn for the uses and purposes of mining in like manner as private property was by law condemned and taken for public use the improvements made on lands purchased from the state by other persons; and


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 97 (Chapter 92, SB 159)ê

 

      Whereas, Such provisions of chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, were in 1957 incorporated in Nevada Revised Statutes as NRS 516.010; and

      Whereas, By chapter 172, Statutes of Nevada 1921, the legislature of the State of Nevada provided that every person, corporation or association, his or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors who has a subsisting contract with the State of Nevada for the purchase of any lands of the State of Nevada, or who might thereafter contract with the State of Nevada for the purchase of any of its public lands, and every patentee of lands purchased from the State of Nevada should, subject to the royalty provided in such act, be deemed and held to have the right to the exclusive possession of the lands described in such contract, including all gas, coal, oil and oil shales that might exist in such lands, and that every person, corporation or association, his or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors, who had theretofore received, or should thereafter receive or be entitled to receive, any patent or deed from the State of Nevada granting to him or it any such lands should, subject to the royalty provisions contained in the act, be deemed to have the fee simple title to the lands described in such patent or deed, including all gas, coal, oil and oil shales which might exist therein, provided any such contract holder or patentee should pay to the State of Nevada for the fund which was the original beneficiary of such lands a royalty of 5 percent of the net proceeds of all gas, coal or oil mined or extracted therefrom; and

      Whereas, The Department of the Interior of the United States has in its decisions ruled that the disclaimer made by the State of Nevada under chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, had revested no title in the United States to any minerals contained in such lands, and that no title to such lands or any minerals therein could be received from the United States by reason of chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887; and

      Whereas, The attorney general of the State of Nevada had in opinions rendered by his office prior to the year 1962 held that the State of Nevada held no title to any of the minerals received in grants from the United States subsequent to the enactment of chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, and that no title could be received from the state therefor; and

      Whereas, The United States by Public Law 87-340 in the 87th Congress, S-2272, October 3, 1961, disclaimed any interest in lands which it might have acquired by virtue of chapter 103, Statutes of Nevada 1887, or by any revisions or reenactment thereof, which act was approved October 3, 1961; and

      Whereas, By the statutes and decisions hereinbefore mentioned a confusion has arisen as to the extent of mineral rights possessed by the holder of a patent from the State of Nevada, or his, her or its successors in interest, subsequent to March 3, 1887; and

      Whereas, It is the view of the legislature of the State of Nevada that NRS 321.300 did intend to vest in all patentees, their heirs, successors and assigns the fee simple title to all minerals in such lands theretofore conveyed or thereafter conveyed by the State of Nevada, subject only to the royalty provisions contained in NRS 321.300; and

 


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 98 (Chapter 92, SB 159)ê

 

theretofore conveyed or thereafter conveyed by the State of Nevada, subject only to the royalty provisions contained in NRS 321.300; and

      Whereas, It is in the view of the legislature of the State of Nevada that it is to the best interests of the State of Nevada and its inhabitants that the intention of chapter 172, Statutes of Nevada 1921, be carried out, and that the confusion as to titles to minerals in public lands sold by the State of Nevada be settled, and that the titles of the patentees, their heirs, successors and assigns be confirmed, and that any such person, corporation or association, his, her or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors be authorized to bring a declaratory judgement action against the State of Nevada to determine the state’s interest in such minerals, and if it be determined that the State of Nevada has any interest therein, other than the royalty interest set forth in NRS 321.300, such party be granted an option to purchase such interest; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Chapter 321 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto the provisions set forth as sections 2 to 4, inclusive, of this act.

      Sec. 2.  Every person, corporation or association, his, her or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors, who has heretofore received since March 3, 1887, or shall hereafter receive or be entitled to receive any patent or deed from the State of Nevada granting to him, her or it any lands of the State of Nevada shall, subject to the royalty provision contained in NRS 321.300, be confirmed in the fee simple title to the lands described in such patent or deed, and all of the minerals therein, including all gas, coal, oil and oil shales which may exist therein, but any such patentee, or his, her or its successors in interest, holding such fee simple title shall pay to the State of Nevada for the fund which was the original beneficiary of such lands the royalty provided by NRS 321.300.

      Sec. 3.  1.  Every person, corporation or association, his, her or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors referred to in section 2 of this act, who is entitled to the possession of any lands that may have been purchased by him, her or it, or his, her or its predecessors in interest, from the State of Nevada subsequent to March 3, 1887, may bring an action in the district court of this state in and for any county where such lands or any part thereof are situate to determine by declaratory judgement of such court whether or not the State of Nevada has any rights to any minerals therein, including any oil, gas, coal and oil shales and, if possible, the extent thereof, and the State of Nevada hereby consents to the bringing of any such action or actions.

      2.  Service of process on the State of Nevada in any such action may be secured by serving a copy of the complaint, together with a copy of the summons, on the attorney general of the State of Nevada.

      Sec. 4.  1.  If in any such action authorized by section 3 of this act it is determined that the State of Nevada has any interest in any minerals in any such lands, save and except the royalty interest provided for in NRS 321.300, then any such person, corporation or association, his, her or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors, bringing any such action as plaintiff in such action, shall have the option for 1 year from the entry of final judgement in such action to purchase from the State of Nevada all of the interest of the State of Nevada in the minerals in such lands, save and except the royalty interest authorized by NRS 321.300, at a price of 15 cents for each acre of land involved in such action.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 99 (Chapter 92, SB 159)ê

 

for in NRS 321.300, then any such person, corporation or association, his, her or its heirs, assigns or lawful successors, bringing any such action as plaintiff in such action, shall have the option for 1 year from the entry of final judgement in such action to purchase from the State of Nevada all of the interest of the State of Nevada in the minerals in such lands, save and except the royalty interest authorized by NRS 321.300, at a price of 15 cents for each acre of land involved in such action.

      2.  If such option is exercised, payment for such mineral interest shall be made to the state land register in cash within the period of such option, and the state land register is authorized and directed upon the payment of any such option price to deliver to the purchaser a deed from the State of Nevada to such purchaser, conveying all of the state’s interest in the minerals in the lands involved in such action, save and except the royalty interest of the state provided for in NRS 321.300.

      Sec. 5.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

      Section 1.  Subject to the provisions of section 2 of this act, the board of county commissioners of Clark County, State of Nevada, is hereby authorized and empowered, in addition to the powers elsewhere conferred upon the board, to establish, construct, otherwise acquire, reconstruct, improve, extend or better a juvenile detention home, and improvements incidental thereto, to equip and furnish the same, to acquire a suitable site or grounds therefor, and to issue general obligation bonds therefor in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $850,000.

acquire a suitable site or grounds therefor, and to issue general obligation bonds therefor in not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of $850,000. (Such building, incidental improvements, equipment, furnishings, sites and grounds are hereinafter sometimes designated as the facilities.)

      Sec. 2.  The board of county commissioners may submit the question of issuing such general obligation bonds to the electors qualified to vote thereon, at a special, primary or general election, held in accordance with NRS 350.010 to 350.070, inclusive, all laws amendatory thereof, and the laws of the State of Nevada relating to elections insofar as the same can be made applicable. If a majority of both the white and colored ballots cast on the question so submitted are in favor of the issuance of the bonds, the proposal to issue them shall have carried, and the board of county commissioners may thereafter proceed to issue the bonds in accordance with the provisions of this act. If a majority of either the white ballots or the colored ballots cast on the question so submitted is against the issuance of the bonds, then such proposal shall have failed, and the board shall be without power to issue the bonds. The submission of a question of issuing bonds as herein provided shall not prevent or prohibit the submission of the same or similar question at a subsequent election called for that purpose.

      Sec. 3.  The bonds shall be of convenient denominations, shall be negotiable in form, shall mature serially in regular numerical order at annual or other designated intervals in substantially equal amounts of principal or upon an amortization plan for the bonds so that substantially equal amounts shall be required annually for the payment of the principal of and interest on the bonds, except for the first or last installment, or both, which may be for greater or lesser amounts, or both, than required by either of the aforesaid limitations, or in amounts otherwise designated and fixed by the board, commencing not later than 3 years from the date of the bonds and ending not later than 20 years from such date, and shall bear interest at a rate or rates of not more than 6 percent per annum, the interest on each bond to be payable annually, semiannually, or at other designated intervals. The bonds shall be made payable in lawful money of the United States of America, at such place or places within or without the State of Nevada as may be provided by the board, and the bonds shall have interest coupons attached in such manner that they can be removed upon the payment of the installments of interest without injury to the bonds. Each coupon shall be consecutively numbered and shall bear the number of the bond to which it is attached. The bonds and coupons shall be signed by the chairman of the board of county commissioners and countersigned by the treasurer of the county, and the bonds shall be authenticated by the official seal of the county. Facsimile signatures may be used on the coupons. Any of such officers, after filing with the secretary of state his manual signature certified by him under oath, may execute or cause to be executed with a facsimile signature in lieu of his manual signature any bond herein authorized, provided that at least one signature required or permitted to be placed thereon shall be manually subscribed, and his facsimile signature has the same legal effect as his manual signature.

manually subscribed, and his facsimile signature has the same legal effect as his manual signature. (Such a filing is not a condition precedent to the execution of any coupon.) The board may cause the seal of the county to be printed, engraved, stamped or otherwise placed in facsimile on any bond. The facsimile seal has the same legal effect as the impression of the seal. The bonds and coupons, bearing the signatures of the officers in office at the time of the signing thereof, shall be the valid and binding obligations of the county, notwithstanding that before the delivery thereof and payment therefor, any or all of the persons whose signatures appear thereon shall have ceased to fill their respective offices. Any officer herein authorized or permitted to sign any bond, at the time of its execution and of the execution of a signature certificate, may adopt as and for his own facsimile signature the facsimile signature of his predecessor in office in the event that such facsimile signature appears upon the bond or coupons pertaining thereto, or upon both the bond and such coupons. The board of county commissioners may provide for the registration of the bonds for payment as to principal or interest, or both, and may provide for the redemption of any or all of the bonds prior to maturity, upon such terms and upon the payment of such premium, if any, as may be determined by the board in the ordinance authorizing the issuance of the bonds.

      Sec. 4.  The board is hereby authorized to sell such bonds at one time, or from time to time, at public or private sale, as the board may determine, for not less than the principal amount thereof and accrued interest; provided, however, that none of the bonds shall be issued, sold or delivered after 3 years from the effective date of this act. No discount or commission shall be allowed or paid on or for any such sale to any purchaser or bidder, directly or indirectly, provided that the board may employ legal, fiscal, engineering or other expert services in connection with the acquisition, reconstruction, improvement, extension or betterment of such facilities and with the authorization, issuance and sale of such bonds.

      Sec. 5.  The general obligation bonds authorized to be issued under the provisions of this act shall be payable from general (ad valorem) taxes levied against all the taxable property in the county, including the net proceeds of mines; and, so far as legally possible, within the limitations of section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, the bonds shall be payable as to both principal and interest from taxes, fully sufficient for that purpose, to be levied on all taxable property within the boundaries of the county, and without regard to any statutory tax limitations now or hereafter existing. It shall be the duty of the board and of any other body as may be charged with the duty of levying taxes therein, annually in due season, to provide for the levy of taxes fully sufficient, after making due allowances for probable delinquencies, to assure the prompt payment of all such principal and interest as they become due. In any year in which the total taxes levied against the taxable property in the county by all overlapping units therein may exceed the limitation of 5 cents on the dollar imposed by section 2 of article 10 of the constitution of the State of Nevada, and it shall become necessary by reason thereof to reduce the levies made by any or all such units, the reduction so made shall be in taxes levied by such unit or units for purposes other than the payment of their bonded indebtedness, and the taxes levied hereafter for the payment of bonded indebtedness shall always enjoy a priority over taxes levied by each such unit for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of such section 2 of article 10.

the State of Nevada, and it shall become necessary by reason thereof to reduce the levies made by any or all such units, the reduction so made shall be in taxes levied by such unit or units for purposes other than the payment of their bonded indebtedness, and the taxes levied hereafter for the payment of bonded indebtedness shall always enjoy a priority over taxes levied by each such unit for all other purposes where reduction is necessary in order to comply with the limitations of such section 2 of article 10. Nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to prevent the county from applying other funds that may be in the treasury and available for that purpose to the payment of the interest and principal as the same respectively mature, and upon such payments the levy or levies therefor provided may thereupon to that extent be diminished.

      Sec. 6.  The ordinance or ordinances providing for the issuance of such bonds may state the bonds shall contain a recital that they are issued pursuant to this act, which recital shall be conclusive evidence of their validity and the regularity of their issuance.

      Sec. 7.  This act, without reference to other statutes of the state, shall constitute full authority for the authorization and issuance of bonds hereunder, except as herein otherwise specifically provided. No other act or law with regard to the authorization or issuance of bonds that in any way impedes or restricts the carrying out of the acts herein authorized to be done shall be construed as applying to any proceedings taken hereunder or acts done pursuant hereto. The powers conferred by this act shall be in addition and supplemental to, and not in substitution for, and the limitations imposed by this act shall not affect the powers conferred by, any other law. No part of this act shall repeal or affect any other law or any part thereof, it being intended that this act shall provide a separate method of accomplishing its objectives, and not an exclusive one.

      Sec. 8.  Bonds issued under the provisions of this act, their transfer, and the income therefrom, shall forever be and remain free and exempt from taxation by this state or any subdivision thereof.

      Sec. 9.  It shall be legal for the State of Nevada and any of its agencies, departments or political subdivisions, or any political or public corporation, or any instrumentality of the State of Nevada, to invest funds or moneys in their custody in any of the bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions of this act.

      Sec. 10.  This act being necessary to secure and preserve the public health, safety, and convenience and welfare, it shall be liberally construed to effect its purpose.

      Sec. 11.  If any provision of this act or the application thereof to any person, association, corporation or circumstance is held invalid, such invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of this act which can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and to this extent the provisions of this act are declared to be servable.

      Sec. 12.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.

[Approved March 25, 1963]

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  Title 10 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto a new chapter to consist of the provisions set forth as sections 2 to 13, inclusive, of this act.

      Sec. 2.  As used in this chapter:

      1.  “Common areas” means the entire project excepting all units therein granted or reserved.

      2.  “Condominium” means an estate in real property consisting of an undivided interest in common in portions of a parcel of real property together with a separate interest in space in an apartment, industrial or commercial building or industrial and commercial building on such real property, such as an apartment, office or store. A condominium may include in addition a separate interest in other portions of such real property. Such estate may, with respect to the duration of its enjoyment, be either:

      (a) An estate of inheritance or perpetual estate;

      (b) An estate for life; or

      (c) An estate for years.

      3.  “Project” means the entire parcel of real property divided or to be divided into condominiums, including all structures thereon.

      4.  “To divide” real property means to divide the ownership thereof by conveying one or more condominiums therein but less than the whole thereof.

      5.  “Unit” means the elements of a condominium which are not owned in common with the owners of other condominiums in the project.

      Sec. 3.  1.  The provisions of this chapter shall apply to property divided or to be divided into condominiums only if there shall be recorded in the county in which such property lies a plan consisting of:

      (a) A description or survey map of the surface of the land included within the project;

      (b) Diagrammatic floor plans of the building or buildings built or to be built thereon in sufficient detail to identify each unit, its relative location and approximate dimensions; and

      (c) A certificate consenting to the recordation of such plan pursuant to this chapter signed and acknowledged by the record owner of such property and by all record holders of security interests therein.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 127 (Chapter 107, AB 172)ê

 

to this chapter signed and acknowledged by the record owner of such property and by all record holders of security interests therein.

      2.  Such plan may be amended or revoked by a subsequently acknowledged recorded instrument executed by the record owner of such property and by all record holders of security interests therein. Until recordation of a revocation, the provisions of this chapter shall continue to apply to such property.

      3.  The term “record owner” as used in this section includes all of the record owners of such property at the time of recordation, but does not include holders of security interests, mineral interests, easements or rights-of-way.

      Sec. 4.  Unless otherwise expressly stated therein, any transfer or conveyance of a unit, or an apartment, office or store which is a part of a unit shall be presumed to convey the entire condominium.

      Sec. 5.  Unless otherwise expressly provided in the deeds, declaration of restrictions or plan, the incidents of a condominium grant are as follows:

      1.  The boundaries of the unit granted are the interior surfaces of the perimeter walls, floors, ceilings, windows and doors thereof, and the unit includes both the portions of the buildings so described and the airspace so encompassed. The following are not part of the unit: Bearing walls, columns, floors, roofs, foundations, elevator equipment and shafts, central heating, central refrigeration and central air conditioning equipment, reservoirs, tanks, pumps and other central services, pipes, ducts, flues, chutes, conduits, wires and other utility installations, wherever located, except the outlets thereof when located within the unit. In interpreting deeds and plans the existing physical boundaries of the unit or of a unit reconstructed in substantial accordance with the original plans thereof shall be conclusively presumed to be its boundaries rather than the metes and bounds expressed in the deed or plan, regardless of settling or lateral movement of the building and regardless of minor variance between boundaries shown on the plan or in the deed and those of the building.

      2.  The common areas are owned by the owners of the unit as tenants in common in equal shares, one for each unit.

      3.  A nonexclusive easement for ingress, egress and support through the common areas is appurtenant to each unit and the common areas are subject to such easements.

      4.  Each condominium owner shall have the exclusive right to paint, repaint, tile, wax, paper or otherwise refinish and decorate the inner surfaces of the walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors bounding his own unit.

      Sec. 6.  1.  Where several persons own condominiums in a condominium project, an action may be brought pursuant to NRS 39.010 to 39.490, inclusive, by one or more of such persons for partition thereof by sale of the entire project, as if the owners of all of the condominiums in such project were tenants in common in the entire project in the same proportion as their interests in the common areas, but a partition shall be made only upon the showing that:


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 128 (Chapter 107, AB 172)ê

 

      (a) Three years after damage or destruction to the project which renders a material part thereof unfit for its use prior thereto, the project has not been rebuilt or repaired substantially to its state prior to its damage or destruction; or

      (b) Three-fourths or more of the project has been destroyed or substantially damaged, and that condominium owners holding in aggregate more than 50-percent interest in the common areas are opposed to repair or restoration of the project; or

      (c) The project has been in existence in excess of 50 years, that it is obsolete and uneconomic, and that condominium owners holding in aggregate more than 50-percent interest in the common areas are opposed to repair or restoration of the project; or

      (d) Conditions for such a partition by sale set forth in restrictions entered into with respect to such project have been met.

      2.  Except as provided in subsection 1, the common areas shall remain undivided, and there shall be no judicial partition thereof. Nothing herein shall be deemed to prevent partition of a cotenancy in a condominium.

      Sec. 7.  The owner of a project may, prior to the conveyance of any condominium therein, record a declaration of restrictions relating to such project, which restrictions shall be enforcible equitable servitudes where reasonable. Such servitudes, unless otherwise provided, may be enforced, by any owner of a condominium in the project, and may provide, among other things:

      1.  For the management of the project by one or more of the following management bodies:

      (a) The condominium owners;

      (b) A board of governors elected by the owners; or

      (c) A management agent elected by the owners or the board or named in the declaration.

      2.  For voting majorities, quorums, notices, meeting dates and other rules governing such body or bodies.

      3.  As to any such management body:

      (a) For the powers thereof, including power to enforce the provisions of the declaration of restrictions;

      (b) For maintenance by it of fire, casualty, liability, workmen’s compensation and other insurance insuring condominium owners, and for bonding of the members of any management body;

      (c) For provision by it of and payment by it for maintenance, utility, gardening and other services benefiting the common areas, for employment of personnel necessary for operation of the building, and legal and accounting services;

      (d) For purchase by it of materials, supplies and the like and for maintenance and repair of the common areas;

      (e) For payment by it of taxes which would be a lien upon the entire project or common areas, and for discharge by it of any lien or encumbrance levied against the entire project or common areas;

      (f) For payment by it for reconstruction of any portion or portions of the project damaged or destroyed;

      (g) For delegation by it of its powers;


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 129 (Chapter 107, AB 172)ê

 

      (h) For entry by it or its agents into any unit when necessary in connection with maintenance or construction for which such body is responsible; and

      (i) For the power of the management body to sell the entire project for the benefit of all of the owners thereof when partition of the project may be had under section 6 of this act, which power shall be binding upon all of the owners, whether they assume the obligations of the restrictions or not.

      4.  For amendments of such restrictions, which amendments, if reasonable and made upon vote or consent of a majority in interest of the owners in the project given after reasonable notice, shall be binding upon every owner and every condominium subject thereto, whether the burdens thereon are increased or decreased thereby, and whether the owner of each and every condominium consents thereto or not.

      5.  For independent audit of the accounts of any management body.

      6.  For reasonable assessments to meet authorized expenditures of any management body, and for a reasonable method for notice and levy thereof, each condominium to be assessed separately for its share of such expense in proportion (unless otherwise provided) to its owner’s fractional interest in any common areas, and for the subordination of the liens securing such assessments to other liens either generally or specifically described.

      7.  For the conditions upon which partition may be had of the project pursuant to section 6 of this act. Such right to partition may be conditioned upon failure of the condominium owners to elect to rebuild within a certain period, specified inadequacy of insurance proceeds, specified damage to the building, a decision of an arbitrator, or upon any other reasonable condition; and

      8.  For restrictions upon the severability of the component interests in real property which comprise a condominium. No such restrictions shall extend beyond the period in which the right to partition a project is suspended under section 6 of this act.

      Sec. 8.  1.  A reasonable assessment upon any condominium made in accordance with a recorded declaration of restrictions permitted by section 7 of this act shall be a debt of the owner thereof at the time the assessment is made. The amount of any such assessment plus any other charges thereon, such as interest, costs (including attorneys’ fees), and penalties, as such may be provided for in the declaration of restrictions, shall be and become a lien upon the condominium assessed when the management body causes to be recorded with the county recorder of the county in which such condominium is located a notice of assessment, which shall state:

      (a) The amount of such assessment and such other charges thereon as may be authorized by the declaration of restrictions;

      (b) A description of the condominium against which the same has been assessed; and

      (c) The name of the record owner thereof.

management body or as otherwise provided in the declaration of restrictions. Upon payment of the assessment and charges in connection with such notice has been so recorded, or other satisfaction thereof, the management body shall cause to be recorded a further notice stating the satisfaction and the release of the lien thereof.

      2.  Such lien shall be prior to all other liens recorded subsequent to the recordation of the notice of assessment except that the declaration of restrictions may provide for the subordination thereof to any other liens and encumbrances.

Unless sooner satisfied and released or the enforcement thereof initiated as provided in subsection 3, such lien shall expire and be of no further force or effect 1 year from the date of recordation of the notice of assessment, but the 1-year period may be extended by the management body for not to exceed 1 additional year by recording a written extension thereof.

      3.  Such lien may be enforced by sale by the management body, its agent or attorney, after failure of the owner to pay such an assessment in accordance with the terms, such sale to be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Covenants Nos. 6, 7 and 8 of NRS 107.030, and NRS 107.080 and 107.090, applicable to the exercise of powers of sale in deeds of trust, or in any other manner permitted by law. Unless otherwise provided in the declaration of restrictions, the management body shall have power to bid in the condominium at foreclosure sale and to hold, lease, mortgage and convey the same.

      Sec. 9.  No labor performed or services or materials furnished with the consent of or at the request of a condominium owner or his agent or his contractor or subcontractor shall be the basis for the filing of a lien against the condominium of any other condominium owner, or against any part thereof, or against any other property of any other condominium owner, unless such other owner has expressly consented to or requested the performance of such labor or furnishing of such materials or services. Such express consent shall be deemed to have been given by the owner of any condominium in the case of emergency repairs thereto. Labor performed or services or materials furnished for the common areas, if duly authorized by a management body provided for in a declaration of restrictions governing the property, shall be deemed to be performed or furnished with the express consent of each condominium owner. The owner of any condominium may remove his condominium from a lien against two or more condominiums or any part thereof by payment to the holder of the lien of the fraction of the total sum secured by such lien which is attributable to his condominium.

      Sec. 10.  Unless otherwise provided by a declaration of restrictions under section 7 of this act, the management body, of any, provided for therein, may acquire and hold, for the benefit of the condominium owners, tangible and intangible personal property and may dispose of the same by sale or otherwise; and the beneficial interest in such personal property shall be owned by the condominium owners in the same proportion as their respective interests in the common areas, and shall not be transferable except with a transfer of a condominium.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 131 (Chapter 107, AB 172)ê

 

owners in the same proportion as their respective interests in the common areas, and shall not be transferable except with a transfer of a condominium. A transfer of a condominium shall transfer to the transferee ownership of the transferor’s beneficial interest in such personal property.

      Sec. 11.  Any deed, declaration or plan for a condominium project shall be liberally construed to facilitate the operation of the project, and its provisions shall be presumed to be independent and severable.

      Sec. 12.  Unless a contrary intent is clearly expressed, local zoning ordinances shall be construed to treat like structures, lots or parcels in like manner regardless of whether the ownership thereof is divided by sale of condominiums or into community apartments rather than by lease of apartments, offices or stores.

      Sec. 13.  1.  A condominium project consisting of five or more units shall be deemed to be a subdivision of land within the meaning of NRS 278.320, but only NRS 278.330, 278.340, 278.350, 278.360, 278.370, 278.380, 278.390, subsection 1 of NRS 278.400, subsections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10 of NRS 278.410 and NRS 278.420, 278.430, 278.450, 278.460, 278.470, 278.480 and 278.490 shall be applicable to such condominium projects.

      2.  A condominium project consisting of four units or less shall be deemed to be a subdivision within the meaning of NRS 278.500, but only NRS 278.500, 278.510, 278.530, 278.540, 278.550 and subsection 1 of NRS 278.560 shall be applicable to such condominium projects.

      3.  Tentative or final maps or records of survey required to be prepared and recorded by any of the statutory sections listed in subsections 1 and 2 of this section shall conform with the requirements of section 3 of this act. The sections of NRS listed in subsections 1 and 2 of this section and all other sections of NRS which are deemed applicable to condominiums or condominium projects shall be liberally construed to avoid unreasonable and unduly technical application of such sections to condominiums and condominium projects, and to encourage the establishment of condominiums and condominium projects in Nevada.

      Sec. 14.  Chapter 361 of NRS is hereby amended by adding thereto a new section which shall read as follows:

      Whenever real estate has been divided into condominiums, as defined in subsection 2 of section 2 of this act, each condominium shall be separately assessed to the owner thereof, and the tax on each condominium shall constitute a lien solely thereon.

[Approved March 25, 1963]

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and Assembly,

do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  NRS 108.210 is hereby amended to read as follows:

      108.210  1.  A lienee, upon reasonable notice as the court may direct, may apply to the district court, in the jurisdiction wherein the lien is filed, for an order to discharge the lien wholly, or in part, upon the justification of the sureties of an undertaking required by subsection 2.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 163 (Chapter 118, SB 144)ê

 

filed, for an order to discharge the lien wholly, or in part, upon the justification of the sureties of an undertaking required by subsection 2. The justification must take place within 5 days after the filing of the undertaking, unless otherwise stipulated, and be agreed to between the lienor and the lienee.

      2.  Before making the order of discharge, the judge of the district court having jurisdiction wherein the lien is filed must require an undertaking on behalf of the lienee by at least two sureties, residents and freeholders or householders, in the county in which the lien is filed, to the effect that in case the lienor recovers judgement against the lienee for the punitive debt, the lienee will, on demand, render the property upon which the claim of lien has been filed available for the filing of a claim of lien against it for the satisfaction of the lienor’s claim against the lienee and in satisfaction of any judgement which might be recovered by the lienor, or in default thereof, that such lienee and sureties will, on demand, pay to the lienor the full value of the property upon which the lien was discharged, not exceeding the amount of the judgement against the lienee. The judge making the order may fix the sum for which the undertaking must be executed and, if it is necessary to know the value of the property released, he may order that the property be appraised by one or more disinterested persons as he appoints. The sureties may be required to justify and the lien claim cannot be discharged without their justification if it be required by the lienor.

      3.  The claimant of any lien recorded as provided in NRS 108.010 to 108.240, inclusive, on the payment of the amount thereof, together with the costs incurred, [and the acknowledgment of satisfaction,] shall, at the request of any person interested in the property charged therewith, enter or cause to be entered an acknowledgment of satisfaction of the same of record within 10 days from the request. For failure of the claimant to enter satisfaction within the time, the claimant shall forfeit and pay to the person making the request the sum of $20 per day until the same shall be entered. The sum or sums forfeited may be recovered in the same manner as other debts.

      Sec. 2.  This act shall become effective upon passage and approval.
