Nevada law found in NRS 111.3112(1)(b) states:
“The county recorder shall not record with respect to real property, a notice of completion, a declaration of homestead, a declaration of removal of discriminatory restriction, a lien or notice of lien, an affidavit of death, a mortgage or deed of trust, any conveyance of real property or instrument in writing setting forth an agreement to convey real property or a notice pursuant to NRS 111.3655 unless the document being recorded contains:…the assessor’s parcel number of the property at the top left corner of the first page of the document.”
After calling several county recorder’s offices in Nevada, it was determined that most counties will accept the parcel number label “PIN#” currently found on many of our Nevada recorded documents. A few counties, however, require that the label “APN#” be displayed before the parcel number. As such, we are modifying the applicable Nevada documents to make them consistent by using the label “APN#” at the top left corner of page 1.
The generic documents that are being changed are as follows:
- NV Deed of Trust Second (Cx500)
- HELOC Deed of Trust – NV (Cx3039)
- NV Assignment of Deed of Trust (Cx1538)
- NV Assignment – INV BLANK (Cx3068)
- NV Assignment from MERS (Cx4334)
- NV Deed of Trust (Cx342)
- FHA NV Deed of Trust (Cx19386)
- NV Request for Notice of Default and Sale (Cx22821)
- Loan Modification Agreement – Fixed (Cx10515)
- Loan Modification Agreement – ARM (Cx10514)
- Loan Modification Agreement – Fixed (Cx1701)
- Loan Modification Agreement – ARM (Cx4888)
Note that clients may want review their custom documents that print for Nevada to determine if they would like to make a similar change to the parcel number label.
