Sec. § 116.2109


Plats are a part of the declaration, and are required for all common-interest communities except cooperatives. Each plat must be clear and legible and contain a certification that the plat contains all information required by this section.


Each plat must comply with the provisions of chapter 278 of NRS and show:


The name and a survey of the area which is the subject of the plat;


A sufficient description of the real estate;


The extent of any encroachments by or upon any portion of the property which is the subject of the plat;


The location and dimensions of all easements having a specific location and dimension which serve or burden any portion of the common-interest community;


The location and dimensions, with reference to an established datum, of any vertical unit boundaries and that unit’s identifying number;


The location with reference to an established datum of any horizontal unit boundaries not shown or projected on plats recorded pursuant to subsection 3 and that unit’s identifying number; and


The location and dimensions of limited common elements, including porches, balconies and patios, other than parking spaces and the other limited common elements described in subsections 2 and 4 of NRS 116.2102.


The plats must show or project any units in which the declarant has reserved the right to create additional units or common elements (paragraph (h) of subsection 1 of NRS 116.2105), identified appropriately.


Unless the declaration provides otherwise, when the horizontal boundaries of part of a unit located outside a building have the same elevation as the horizontal boundaries of the inside part, the elevations need not be depicted on the plats.


Upon exercising any developmental right, the declarant shall record new or amended plats necessary to conform to the requirements of subsection 2.


Each plat must be certified by a professional land surveyor.
