10) SAMPLE: Declaration of Homestead 2001

(10) Simplified, a homestead protects you from losing your primary home. If a judgment is not paid, one can try to collect money owed several ways including having a home sold to pay a debt. The homestead law protects a certain amount of the value / equity of your home from being taken to pay judgment. This would be done after the escrow (home purchase or refinancing). Consider a homestead before filing bankruptcy.  You must have it notarized by a Public Notary, but it is easy to file a declared homestead by yourself. You do not need to pay someone else to do it for you.
Enclose your Declaration of Homestead and a moneyorder or a cashiers check for $18.00 and then Mail To: Clark County Recorder, PO Box 551510, Las Vegas, Nevada 899155-1510
***   When you can file a Declaration of Homestead:
1) When you buy a new home.

3) One Homestead in each state or in each county for which you own a home.
