Hello,

 

Unfortunately, the answer is no you can't get it expunged or removed from your record. This is a civil matter not a criminal one, so it is not eligible to be expunged. It will drop off your credit report after 7 years, but that is not helpful now.

.

I would simply be up front with any apartment manager and explain the situation as you have done here and ask them if that would disqualify you. At least that way you can avoid the cost of the credit check. You will likely find better results with a private landlord rather than a leasing company as the private landlords are more inclined to bend their rules.

.

.

Thanks

Matt

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
