Sec. § 663.085
Safe-deposit boxes: Notice of overdue rental; opening of box; retention of contents in general vaults; delivery of contents to State Treasurer.


1.

If the rental due on a safe-deposit box has not been paid for 90 days, the lessor may send a notice by registered or certified mail to the last known address of the lessee stating that the safe-deposit box will be opened and its contents stored at the expense of the lessee unless payment of the rental is made within 30 days. If the rental is not paid within 30 days after the mailing of the notice, the box may be opened in the presence of any officer of the lessor and a notary public. The contents must be sealed in a package by the notary public, who shall write on the outside the name of the lessee and the date of the opening of the box in the presence of the officer. The notary public and the officer shall execute a certificate reciting the name of the lessee, the date of the opening of the box and a list of its contents. The certificate must be included in the package, and a copy of the certificate must be sent by registered or certified mail to the last known address of the lessee. If the contents of the safe-deposit box have been unclaimed by the owner for 3 years or less, the package must then be placed in the general vaults of the lessor at a rental not exceeding the rental previously charged for the box, until such time that the contents will have been unclaimed by the owner for more than 3 years, at which time the lessor shall deliver the package to the State Treasurer in the State Treasurers capacity as the Administrator of Unclaimed Property pursuant to the provisions of chapter 120A of NRS.

2.

If the contents of a safe-deposit box that has been opened pursuant to subsection 1 have been unclaimed by the owner for more than 3 years, the lessor shall deliver the package to the State Treasurer in the State Treasurers capacity as the Administrator of Unclaimed Property pursuant to the provisions of chapter 120A of NRS.
