late fees, early termination fees, etc. where they claim they evicted the tenant. The contract was a one year written lease which started on Sept. 2007 and the tenants moved out on or about April 2008.
The SoL on breach of a written contract in NV is 6 years from the date of breach, which probably means when the last rent payment was due and not paid.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
Generally, for a written contract, a party may sue for breach within six years from the date of the breach. NRS 11.190(1)(b). Even if a tenant was evicted in a summary eviction proceeding, the landlord can initiate a separate action later to recover damages. G.C. Wallace, Inc. v. Eighth Judicial District Court, 127 Nev. Adv. Op. 64, 262 P.3d 1135 (2011).

7 years from the last date of your last payment to them if they got a judgment. If there is not judgement then 6 years. They can renew the judgment every 7 years to allow it to continue. If they have no judgment, they may have no case. The SL starts to run from the day of notice of the breach of the contract. Good Lluck!!
