The documents that are on file with the local recorders office are permanent, so it will always remain "public record" in that sense. On the other hand, most negative information on your credit report must drop after 7 years and that is probably the question you intended to ask.

What is the procedure for reporting a foreclosure to the credit bureaus and does it have to be hand-delivered and what can you do to have it removed?

Foreclosure is a legal procedure filed against borrowers who have failed to pay a mortgaged home loan. If the loan itself is reported to the credit bureaus, then prior to the filing of the legal action the "tradeline" (account listing) would be notated "foreclosure" or "foreclosure proceedings begun". This idicates the account is seriously delinquent and filing of legal action is imminient. This "reporting" is done by the lender/Data Furnisher. This entry would remain for 7 years from the month/year the account was last paid on time immediately prior to its' default. If no remedy is provided (quick sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure or payment in full), then the lender proceeds to file the actual legal action. This does not "get reported". Rather, as with all public records, independent contractors scan public records and re-sells these to various databases, including the three major credit bureaus. By this method, the legal action of foreclosure finds its' way onto your personal credit report. The legal item would be displayed on your credit report for 7 years from the date of filing. So, it is possible to have two notations, one in the "account history" section and one in the "public records" sections, of the same foreclosure. Both entries would be correct. The public record would remain for slightly longer than the account entry notation. If the foreclosure is accurate, there is little a consumer can do to have it removed. This information would be considered vital credit data. Foreclosure is huge indicator of credit risk and is the exact reason that credit information is referenced by prospective lenders. If, on the slim chance, you did manage to have an accurate foreclosure item removed from your credit report; the public record at your local courthouse would still remain. Thus, the record would most likely reappear on your credit report in the future. It can be extremely difficult to obtain a mortgage loan with a foreclosure listed on your credit report. Obviously, this is the biggest indication to lenders that you do not repay home loans. It is also the best reason to avoid foreclosure at all costs. Even a deed in lieu of foreclosure is better than allowing a lender to file against you.

How long is a felony on your record in Florida?

A felony in Florida can remain on your record indefinitely. However, you may be able to seal or expunge the criminal record. Criminal record sealing, under Florida Statute § 943.059, is a process that seals the record from government view, but government agencies (i.e. the police) would retain the ability to access it. Expunging, under Florida Statute § 943.0585, is a similar process that would allow you to seal the record from public access, though government agencies could still obtain access through a court order. Eligibility for criminal record sealing or expunging in Florida can be a tricky process. It is not available to individuals who have been previously convicted of more than one misdemeanor or felony. Additionally, previous juvenile adjunctions, individuals with previously sealed/expunged records, and those under community supervision are not eligible. There is also a long list of criminal offenses that are excluded from this process, including aggravated assault and battery, child abuse, drug trafficking, robbery, and certain other violent crimes, drug crimes, and sexual offenses. Therefore, while the felony can remain on your record, there are options to remove it at the very least from public record. If you are concerned about how a felony conviction can impact your employment prospects, this may be an option to explore.

How can you get a felony off your record in the state of Florida?

File a motion with the Circuit Court requesting your record be expunged of the conviction along with good reasons why your request should be granted. A judge will review your motion and issue a ruling. CAUTION: An expunged conviction is NOT THE SAME as a pardon! The expungment will remove the conviction from your public record, and you will still remain convicted of the offense, but only law enforcement will have access to that info.
