: Who do you have to pay? Do you think you can just buy your way out of any trouble? If you have so much money, why didn't you pay the rent? Then you wouldn't have such problems now.

why the hell do you ASSUME that landlords only sue tenants who actually fail to pay the rent????? many, many tenants get sued for non-payment even though the rent is paid in full, on time too. and guess what? even when fully explained to future landlords, they still refuse to rent to a sued-tenant. why? because they assume a tenant who got sued learned a little about their rights or the laws and landlords prefer to rent to tenants who know nothing.

: To answer your question, the landlord or anyone else can find out about your nonpayment because court records are always public records. How long? For time in perpetuity - you can research court records going back centuries.

actually, the computer only goes back about 7 years, give or take.

: : how long will i be on the s**t list? who and how much do i have to pay to get off it?
