What is a Homestead?

When you record a Declaration of Homestead, Nevada law protects the equity in your home up to $550,000. from general creditor claims (unpaid medical bills, bankruptcy, charge card debts, business/personal loans, accidents) but would not preclude a seizure or forced sale of your residence from general creditors if your equity exceeds the $550,000.  A creditor may file suit and can record a judgement lien against any real property you own.  Recording a Declaration of Homestead protects your principal residence up to the statutory maximum.

The Homestead Law does not protect you against debts secured by a mortgage or deed of trust, payment of taxes, IRS lien, mechanic’s lien child support or alimony payments.
