    Default Rental After Eviction

    I was evicted from an apartment back in 1999. Since then, I have filed Chapter 7 and included the balance of the eviction in the bankruptcy (filed 1 year ago this month).
    Is there any chance that I will ever be able to rent an apartment any place else ever? Does the eviction follow me for the rest of my life?

    Default Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

    A chapter 7 bankruptcy will appear on your credit report for ten years.

    Default

    I realize that the chapter 7 will be on my file for 10 years. The question that I am posing is for rental. Will the eviction prevent me from renting?

    Default Bad Credit & Renting an Apartment

    Not all landlords run credit checks.

    Among those that do, I think that most will be more concerned with your recent credit history and overall score than with an increasingly distant bankruptcy and eviction (assuming the eviction still appears). But that's ultimately going to depend upon the individual landlord's rental policies.
