Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help if I can. However, can you please clarify your question? You ask if there is any way to "take it back." What are you referring to?
Thanks for clarifying. I understand now.
Unfortunately, an eviction would indeed be on her credit report as a court judgment, and it cannot come off of her report even if you were to ask as the landlord who evicted. The credit bureaus have a legal obligation to report accurate and truthful information, and in this case, it is accurate and truthful that she was evicted.
The best way to deal with this situation may be to draft a recommendation letter on her behalf that she can provide to a potential landlord, which explains the circumstances of her eviction. When she applies for a new apartment, she can explain the circumstances herself, and provide the letter from you. It's certainly not guaranteed to work in all cases, but I suspect that at least some potential landlords will take a chance.
I am truly sorry that my answer may be bad news for you, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know, and I will be happy to clarify my answer.
