There is no way to determine if, or when, the matter would become a part of the tenant/debtor's credit report. Evictions do not appear on credit reports unless the landlord sues the tenant and is awarded a judgment for monies owed. In such a case the judgment is entered in the public records portion of the person's CR.

If you sign an apartment lease as a cosigner and you will not be living at the apartment will this show up on your credit report?

So long as your apartment is paid and current, such leases will not appear on your credit report. However, should you or the person you are guaranteeing become delinquent, there are several ways in which this information can appear on the credit report. In some states, landlords work directly with collection agencies, in which case it would show up a a delinquency and tarnish your score. In other situations, your name may be mention as a party to an eviction or legal proceeding, something which may show up in other searches that accompany credit reports, such as eviction history, or certain criminal background checks. The best suggestion is if you don't have to guarantee or cosign, don't do it unless you can afford to pay for that person should they become delinquent on their obligations.
