    Answered . If you lose the eviction case then it could be put on your record. Assuming the landlord reports it. The only way to tell your side of the story is to retain an attorney who can put you on the witness stand and ask appropriate questions. However, I warn that telling your side may be irrelevant. The only thing that matters in an eviction case is the lease terms themselves. If no written lease there is some presumed sections that would apply. My office has handled these types of issues in Dayton.
