Q:  Will a homestead save me from foreclosure?homestead sparks nv

A: No

A declaration of homestead, in the state of Nevada, can protect interest in an owner occupied property up to $550,000 of equity. Any equity above that amount is not protected.


The declaration protects against:

  • Unpaid medical bills not owed to the Department of Health and Human Services for Medicaid
  • Bankruptcy
  • Credit Card Debts
  • Business/Personal Unsecured Loans
  • Accidents

The declaration does not protect against:

  • Debts secured by a mortgage or deed of trust
  • Payment of taxes
  • IRS Lien
  • Mechanic’s lien
  • Child support
  • Alimony Payments

The homestead form can be found at the Washoe County site and will need to be recorded at the Washoe County Recorder’s Office.
