How can you find out if you have an eviction on your record?
The first place to check is your credit report. Also, check with the court for the county in which you have rented. The local real estate association may keep records that are accessed by rental managers.
The best thing to do is to answer the application honestly, provide an explanation and say that it will not happen again. If you have a good credit rating that can make all the difference. While apartment managers depend on the real estate records, your credit report and job verification will be the determining factor.
There are certain parameters under which an eviction can be removed from your rental history record and your credit report. However, it is a process. I know because it was done for me. You check your credit report in the case of a monetary judgment filed and reported to the 3 major bureaus (public records for judgments and collections for judgments assigned to collection agencies). The eviction, itself, will forever be a matter of public record unless you get it expunged. However, it is not necessarily the court records for which you must focus your removal efforts. It is the information found in your rental history records and on your credit reports that will first tell your 'rental story'. Most landlords will NOT go down and, personally, search through court records for every tenant-particularly when there are other states and counties involved. Landlords (coincidentally, I am one now) rely upon information found within the TENANT BACKGROUND CHECKS (which YOU pay for when you apply for their rentals.). If the information is NOT in these two records, you will be helping yourself. This is what removeevictions.com can do for you. They can even, in some cases, have the record expunged for you. Waving a magic wand over your records is not going to do anything to have your eviction removed; however, following the right processes will.
Many persons are not aware that this can be done b/c a lot of work is involved in these processes. This is why it is best to leave it in the hands of those who do it for a living.
NOTE: No one can clean up your record for you, so save your money. The best they can do is to send a letter, which may temporarily remove the listing. If the record is correct then it will be re-listed.
Contrary to popular opinions, evictions can be removed from your records (rental history and credit report). This can be done by one or more of the following avenues: the data compilation reporting companies reporting your eviction information; the courts (plaintiff assists you and/or finding any discrepancies within the process; and time (however, even 'expired reporting time limits' do not make your eviction information automatically become removed from your records. It takes action to have these removed). My sphere of experience in this area is that my eviction was removed from my records by a company that specializes in the removal of evictions.
Will an eviction still be placed on your record if you move out before court and move out before sheriffs have to come put you out?
Wait, I misunderstood your question, do you want an eviction on your record? It will be harder to get another apartment in the future and it stays on your permanent record. So, If you are not paying rent and you have no lease and you think the eviction will give you some spare time you are right but it will screw up your future. You should talk to your landlord and do it amicably.
The judgment will only stay on your credit record for 7 years. If you go to free annual credit report (www.annualcreditreport.com) You can look at your credit report for free. But be aware you can only do this once a year. But where the judgment is it will tell you when it will be removed from your report. As for how long it will stay on the public record... I do not know. I am…
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…
How do I get a eviction off my recorded I never owned my owe apartment I stayed with mom and she evicted me but on my public record it doesn't tell it just says I got evicted for not paying rent?
Since eviction is not a criminal offense, there is no record of it whenever your criminal history check is requested. However, it probably will appear on your credit report file. Unfortunately, your credit records are maintained by private companies who are not responsive to removing any records from your files.
Generally speaking, a tenant who has an eviction judgment on their credit record is subject to his or her particular state law regarding how long that judgment can legally appear as a public record and show on their credit record. Some states limit that time to seven years, others ten. The answer to this question is as as folows; a tenant who has an eviction judgment (on their credit report) typically will go back to…
No. An eviction and judgment should show up on your credit report for only 7 years. If a 14-year old eviction is still on your credit, contact the appropriate credit bureaus for dismissal of the judgment. Note that the court files are permanent, and the landlord may still find the eviction that way, depending on how he screens tenants.
An eviction will stay on your record regardless of the future status of the entity that legally evicted you. Only time will heal that -- normally seven years. However, most apartment complexes will take a look at your record of only about three years and make their decision. However each complex is different and has their own rules, and unfortunately there is nothing you can do about it.
A stay of eviction is a temporary hold on the eviction process that a court sometimes issues for some extraordinary reason. If a tenant is evicted, but there would be a substantial hardship on the tenant or the family, the tenant may apply for a stay of eviction. If there is a genuine hardship, the court will order a temporary halt in the eviction process but only until the hardship or until a reasonable time…
Maybe. First, if one has an unpaid eviction judgment, it would have to be paid prior to closing on the home. Second, a lender might be hesitant to loan money to someone who has gone through eviction, or may charge a higher interest rate on the loan. Those with evictions on their credit record should consider seller-financed homes and possibly VA or FHA loans as a path to home ownership.
Once on a Friday, I showed an apartment to a couple at 6pm. Based on what they told me they appeared to be stellar candiates. When searching their backgrounds that evening at about 8pm, I discovered their court ordered eviction that had taken place at 4pm, that afternoon, about 2 hours before coming to see my open apartment. I would say it goes on your record about as quickly as the court documents it. And…
