Sec. § 104A.2508
Lessee’s remedies.


If a lessor fails to deliver the goods in conformity to the lease contract (NRS 104A.2509) or repudiates the lease contract (NRS 104A.2402), or a lessee rightfully rejects the goods (NRS 104A.2509) or justifiably revokes acceptance of the goods (NRS 104A.2517), then with respect to any goods involved, and with respect to all of the goods if under an installment lease contract the value of the whole lease contract is substantially impaired (NRS 104A.2510), the lessor is in default under the lease contract and the lessee may:


Cancel the lease contract (subsection 1 of NRS 104A.2505);


Recover so much of the rent and security as has been paid and is just under the circumstances;


Cover and recover damages as to all goods affected whether or not they have been identified to the lease contract (NRS 104A.2518 and 104A.2520), or recover damages for nondelivery (NRS 104A.2519 and 104A.2520); and


Exercise any other rights or pursue any other remedies provided in the lease contract.


If a lessor fails to deliver the goods in conformity to the lease contract or repudiates the lease contract, the lessee may also:


If the goods have been identified, recover them (NRS 104A.2522); or


In a proper case, obtain specific performance or replevy the goods (NRS 104A.2521).


If a lessor is otherwise in default under a lease contract, the lessee may exercise the rights and pursue the remedies provided in the lease contract, which may include a right to cancel the lease, and in subsection 3 of NRS 104A.2519.


If a lessor has breached a warranty, whether express or implied, the lessee may recover damages (subsection 4 of NRS 104A.2519).


On rightful rejection or justifiable revocation of acceptance, a lessee has a security interest in goods in the lessee’s possession or control for any rent and security that has been paid and any expenses reasonably incurred in their inspection, receipt, transportation and care and custody and may hold those goods and dispose of them in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner, subject to the provisions of subsection 5 of NRS 104A.2527.


Subject to the provisions of NRS 104A.2407, a lessee, on notifying the lessor of the lessee’s intention to do so, may deduct all or any part of the damages resulting from any default under the lease contract from any part of the rent still due under the same lease contract.
