Back in March of this year I was coming up on the end of my lease and at the time i had a roommate. I asked if she wanted to renew for 6 months and she agreed, she actually signed it first. Fast forward to May, I noticed she hadn't been there for a while so I figured she was visiting with her family. Two weeks into the month I came home to discover she had broken her agreement and moved out leaving me stuck with ALL of the bills. I was able to pay up until the last two months of the lease and unfortunately I was evicted. I'm currently trying to find a place to live but this is making it very hard for me. Is there anything I can do to correct this?
Unfortunately, no. Accurate credit reporting cannot be deleted. Do not pay any "credit repair" company for this - it will not work. You should try looking for a private individual to rent from, who might be more understanding. Most corporate property management companies have an inflexible policy and will not approve a lease for someone who has this recent of an eviction. You could also get a cosigner for your next lease who has good credit.

I couldn't agree more with Ms. Coleman. There is unfortunately nothing to correct as the eviction is accurate. Unfortunately, your friend left you high and dry. DO NOT pay any of the credit repair companies as they are scams.
