Yes, but probably with some restrictions. If the eviction was perfected as a judgment the judgment will remain on the credit report for 7 years from time of award. Bear in mind most judgments are renewable and can be reentered on a CR. That being the case renting an apartment would be difficult without having a cosigner or perhaps paying a substanial deposit. If the eviction is not a judgment the entry will be on entered in the tenantsscreening history that is kept by private companies and can be accessed by landlords/rental agencies. That type of entry generally remains for 5 years. ****In los angeles county there is a tenant screening service and your name remains on there for 10 years. In some cases the people who run this service out of their wilshire boulevard office don't remove names even after 10 years unless threatened with legal action. It will be really tough finding a new apartment, friends have helped me out and have rented past apartments for me under their identity and I live by myself in the unit but I keep a very low profile. In my recent apartment I had to pretend to be an illegal alien to get an apartment luckily they bought it and I have been here for almost two years in not a terrible area but some of the places I lived in before were practically flop houses.

If you just recently got an eviction what are your chances on getting a place?

Get a new place before the final judgment hits the Court's public record, and your credit report. There are companies that search court records for eviction judgments, enter the info into a database and then charge fees to Landlords for checking a potential tenant's background. Be aware that even though you sign a new lease, if the new landlord should ever become aware that you had an eviction when you signed your lease, it may be grounds for them to terminate your lease, and you're out again. Read the lease or application for their policy on future knowledge of your previous eviction. And keep your fingers crossed they never find out. It will be on your record for 7-10 years, depending upon the state and eviction laws.

What happens to personal property of an evicted tenant in New Jersey?

A tenant is "evicted" when the court issues a judgment for possession to the landlord. That judgment gives the tenant a date by which the move has to be made. If the tenant holds over in possession of the apartment despite the judgment of possession, the landlord gets a "warrant for removal", which is sent to a court constable. If the tenant has not vacated the premises, the warrant for removal permits the court officer to physically remove the tenant's belongings out of the apartment and leave them at the curb. It is extremely rare that such a thing ever happens though, because in virtually every eviction matter, the tenant moves out before the physical eviction has to take place.

Can a landlord place an eviction on your rental history and allow you to remain in the apartment yet still keep an eviction on your rental history even though you were never evicted?

(2009) If you were not ever evicted from the apartment then your LL should not be registering (in any official capacity) that you were evicted. Such false registration by the LL may bring about the consequence of you having your credit rating affected or even making it more difficult for you to get a loan, a new rental, a mortgage, etc. Such false reporting by a landlord could therefore constitute slandering/defamation to you and even undue expenses. You should inform your LL, by registered mail immediately that, you want the incorrect 'eviction' registration/reporting removed within 30 days and furthermore that, if the LL does not comply with your request that you shall hold him liable for any future expenses that you may incur as a consequence of his false registration that he failed to correct in a timely manner, when notified by you.
