PHASE I Crime Free Multi Housing Management Training
NOTE:  This is for PHASE I of the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program, which is now a REQUIREMENT
            for Apartment Managers under Apartment House Code (6.12.090). You can DOWNLOAD
            a letter from the NSAA and LVMPD regarding this change

                  CODE (6.12.090). Just RSVP above to RESERVE your spot!

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program began to help reduce crimes and
                  police calls for service in multi-housing properties like apartment communities.
                  The goal of the Crime Free Multi-Housing program is to introduce crime
                  prevention techniques to rental property as to reduce the likelihood of criminal
                  activity occurring on the premises.

                  Being part of a crime-free program is a true team effort. Tenants and management
                  are involved and strongly encouraged to report any suspicious activity to your
                  local Police Department in order to promote safety for themselves, their families
                  and their community.

                  When criminals and other destructive tenants operate out of rental property,
                  neighborhoods suffer and landlords pay a high price. That price may include:

  • Decline in property values -- particularly when the activity begins
    affecting the reputation of the neighborhood.
  • Property damage arising from abuse, retaliation, or neglect;
    property damage from police raids.
  • Fire resulting from manufacturing or growing operations.
  • Civil penalties, including temporary closure of the property -- or
    even property seizure.
  • Loss of rent during the eviction and repair periods.
  • Fear and frustration when dealing with dangerous and threatening
  • Increased resentment and anger between neighbors and property
  • The loss of other valued tenants.

                   The program uses a three-part approach for a property to become fully certified
                   in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program.

                   NOW REQUIRED -----> PHASE ONE involves an 8 hour seminar presented by
                   the police department for the apartment management and employees.

                   PHASE TWO will certify that the rental property has met the security requirements
                   for the tenants' safety.

                   In PHASE THREE a tenant crime prevention meeting will be conducted for full
                   certification, and the managers will be granted the use of large metal signs for
                   display on the property. The management will also be granted the use of the
                   program logo in all advertisements.

Exciting Times for NVSAA! 
Introducing Our New Billing Structure


This is a very exciting time for us! We are offering more opportunities for our members than ever in key areas: Education, Legislative, Networking.

We are also creating ways to do business better. This allows us to build upon our foundation, and facilitate future growth.

The Nevada State Apartment Association is pleased to announce a streamlined billing structure for our membership. We are moving to a calendar year membership cycle where all members will pay their dues in January and enjoy membership benefits through December of that year.

The goal is to shift our entire membership to this more efficient billing cycle by January 1, 2017.

As such, it’s important to begin the process now. Handling membership in this manner is in line with many other Associations across the country and is design designed to minimize confusion on expiration dates and make the budgeting process easier.

Our goal is to make the transition as easy as possible:

If your membership renewal falls due between September 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015. You will receive an invoice that includes the remaining months of 2015 and all of 2016. Conveniently, your membership will be paid through the end of 2016. The remaining association members expiring in 2016 will receive prorated invoices to finish out next year’s membership. This process puts us on track to begin annual billing for the association, as a whole, in 2017.

Thank you for your cooperation as we make these changes! YOU are what makes the NVSAA the premier multi-family housing association in the region. Let’s keep going and growing!

If you have questions, you can reach me at 702.862.0165

My best to you,

Record-setting tourism and the strongest convention attendance in several years are driving employment growth and creating apartment demand Las Vegas. Job growth is well above the national average, spurring developers to complete projects that were mothballed since the recession. In addition, multifamily permitting is trending more than 60 percent higher as builders rush to keep up with demand for rental space. While more than 1,400 apartments have been completed during the past year, vacancy fell sharply and concession activity nearly halted on well-located properties near employment hubs. The leisure and hospitality sector is providing the biggest job gains in the economy, although more corporations are relocating to the metro due to its position as a travel destination and the lack of a state income tax. The new workers hired by these companies are choosing to rent in prime areas to the southwest of the city, close to shopping centers, freeways and the Strip. Single-family housing costs in these areas are above the metro average, spurring strong rental growth and pushing vacancy down. Tightening operations will lift rents up 3.4 percent this year, more than 100 basis points above inflation.
