Nevada Remedies; Special Actions and Proceedings

Sec. § 31.863
Hearing on order to show cause; undertaking by plaintiff.


Upon the hearing on the order to show cause, the court shall consider the showing made by the parties appearing, and shall make a preliminary determination which party, with reasonable probability, is entitled to possession, use, and disposition of the property pending final adjudication of the claims of the parties. If the court determines that the action is one in which a prejudgment writ of possession should issue, it shall direct the issuance of such writ.


A writ of possession shall not issue until plaintiff has filed with the court a written undertaking executed by two or more sufficient sureties, approved by the court, to the effect that they are bound to the defendant in double the value of the property, as determined by the court, for the return of the property to the defendant if return thereof is ordered, and for the payment to the defendant of any sum as may from any cause be recovered against the plaintiff, except that if there is reasonable cause to believe that the plaintiff is a secured party, as defined in chapter 104 of NRS, no undertaking shall be required for the issuance of the writ of possession.
