If you are a renter who's dwelling unit is being foreclosed upon, the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada has a useful summary of Nevada law on rental foreclosures. The summary includes sample letters to the new owners, step-by-step lists of what to do if you are served with a summons and complaint and information for Section 8 tenants.
