Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

Unfortunately no, this is part of the civil record and remains indefinitely. Unlike some criminal offenses that can be sealed or expunged, an entry on a civil record stays forever...

.

But the older an eviction gets, the less importance a landlord places on it and it drops off your credit report after 7 years,,

.

If you are applying for a place, it is best to include an explanation for the eviction, if you have a good one, and be up front as that makes it more likely a landlord will discount it.

.

As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...

.

.

thanks

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.
