What Evictions Do
Evictions don't directly show up on your credit report, according to Experian, one of the three major credit reporting agencies. However, the late payment history and collections accounts often associated with an eviction do have a negative effect on your credit score. Delinquencies remain on your report for up to seven years from the time your first missed payment is reported. The amount charged off by the property owner may also appear. Landlords often do background checks on tenants, which may include calling previous landlords. If you left on bad terms, don't expect a good review.
