The Nevada legislature has set an October 1 effective date for a new law aimed at dissuading homeowners facing foreclosure from vandalizing the property. The law “prohibits the destruction of real property that is subject to foreclosure with the intent to defraud.” A person who intentionally removes, conceals, or destroys any real property and causes the secured party or lender to suffer a financial loss as a result is guilty of a misdemeanor crime.
