Do evictions show on a credit report?

Credit reports do not indicate that you have been evicted from your residence.   However, credit reports could include a collection account for unpaid rent or lease payments or a civil judgment if you were sued for unpaid lease payments.

In those cases, they remain seven years from the original delinquency date of the collection attempt or seven years from the filing date if you are sued in court.
