Other than paying up and having an additional statement put in there that the account is paid, it is going to be on your report for some time. The eviction will remain on the real estate listing of renter history.

Working withthe previous landlord iis one good way to have the eviction removed, if you have a cooperative landlord and are not dealing with a large property management company. If the previous landlore is harboring any ill-will from the eviction experience and you do not feel that he will be cooperative with you, personally, then use someone else or a company to do the negotiations.

Can you remove evictions document from your public records clean or dispute?

Well, if you are asking if you can physically remove eviction filings from court records, the answer is 'no'; however, within certain parameters, the matters can be sealed from public viewing. If you are asking if you can remove eviction entries from your credit report or from your rental history record/file, then the answer is 'yes' within very stringent parameters. There are certain laws that DCRs (data compilation companies) are supposed to follow that, ofetntimes, they do not. So, your information is made available too soo, beyond the legal length of time to report this information and with invalid information or information that is not updated. The first thiing that you want to do is find out what your prospective landlords will see when they view your credit report and your rental history record and the best way to do this is for you to pull your credit report and look in the public records section for anything (judgment(s) ) related to your eviction. Then, have a company like pull your Rental History Report to see if any evictions show up on your record. Sometimes, when there is no judgment disposition (settled before going to court), your eviction information will still show up when your prospective landlords run your background check. You do not want to be sitting in the property management's office and have this information come up...especially if you have stated that you have no evictions on your record (by going on the information found in your credit report alone). Once you know what's on your record, the aforementioned company ( has methods to have a good percentage of evictions removed, I'm told.
