Evictions are not shown in a credit report

Dear Experian,

I have an eviction on my credit report which is inaccurate. I have proof that it was paid. Every time I apply for an apartment I am denied because of this eviction on my record. I have ordered my credit reports and it does not appear on any of them, yet it’s on every tenant screening report. I would like to know how to have it removed.
