I used to be supposed to be on an inventory three years in the past and this 12 months, I spotted I wasn’t on the checklist. Now, I’m on an inventory, however they cannot inform me what quantity I’m. I would like to hire the appropriate approach. Around me there are numerous homes which have been bought.

If the affiliation is correctly sustaining this checklist (and it seems out of your letter that they’re not), there ought to be no purpose why the affiliation can’t inform you the place you might be on the checklist. My suggestion is that you simply ship a licensed letter to the affiliation requesting this info or else you’d don’t have any selection however to contact the Nevada Division of Real Estate Ombudsman Office. The Ombudsman’s Office can examine this matter, particularly since you might be stating that the homes are being bought and instantly being rented out. In submitting a grievance with the division, such statements would want factual info to help your declare that, in essence, the affiliation is not following its rental policies. Alternatively, you possibly can search assist from an legal professional who focuses on householders associations.
