2015 Nevada Revised Statutes
Chapter 116B - Condominium Hotel Act
NRS 116B.555 - Tort and contract liability.

NV Rev Stat § 116B.555 (2015) What's This?

Neither the association nor any unit’s owner except the declarant or hotel unit owner, as applicable, is liable for that declarant’s or hotel unit owner’s torts in connection with any part of the condominium hotel which that declarant or hotel unit owner, as applicable, owns or has the responsibility to maintain. Otherwise, an action alleging a wrong done by the association must be brought against the association and not against any unit’s owner. If the wrong occurred during any period of declarant’s control over the association and the association gives the declarant reasonable notice of and an opportunity to defend against the action, the declarant who then controlled the association is liable to the association or to any unit’s owner for all tort losses not covered by insurance suffered by the association or that unit’s owner, and all costs that the association would not have incurred but for a breach of contract or other wrongful act or omission. Whenever the declarant is liable to the association under this section, the declarant is also liable for all expenses of litigation, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the association. Any statute of limitation affecting the association’s right of action under this section is tolled until the period of declarant’s control terminates. A unit’s owner is not precluded from maintaining an action contemplated by this section because he or she is a unit’s owner or a member or officer of the association.
