My question involves an eviction in the state of: Alabama
Both my girlfriend and I signed one year lease with landlord. Lease expired and we continued on a month-to-month basis. Girlfriend and I split up and I contacted landlord to let him know that I was moving out and that girlfriend was staying. I moved out and a few months later receive a notice to appear in court on eviction on residence girlfriend stayed in. I went to court and landlord failed to appear and court dismissed case. I am trying to relocate but have been refused rental because a report run by the leasing agent says I was evicted. I explained the situation and showed the paperwork from the court stating case had been dismissed but was still refused. What is my remedy? I contacted the court clerk and was told there was nothing that could be done. I've been advised that I could take former landlord to court but will that clear up my report?
