In Reply to: How long does EVICTION record stay in court's files? posted by Aaron on December 06, 2000 at 18:16:10:

Court records are forever, that is why we can research old cases and judges can cite cases going back decades.

As a practical matter, the computerized databases of LL/T court records goes back a few years. I don't know how they work, since those cases are compiled by private bureaus. Evictions are not on credit reports; judicial judgements (for unpaid rent, damage, etc.) usually are.

As for excuses, why not just explain straightforward and responsibly what happened ? A potential LL does not want to hear some lame assed excuse of why you didn't pay the rent before. Tell him what changes you've made and why it won't happen again.

Good luck.
