My business filed bankruptcy and the commercial landlord had filed an unlawful detainer that should have been expunged when the bankruptcy was discharged.
I have never heard any authority for a bankruptcy expunging an unlawful detainer record. You need someone to go into the Court and vacate the judgment and seal the file.
More facts are needed to give you useful advice. That said, an eviction judgment is a public court record and cannot be removed from your D&B or credit report until after 10 years have passed. If the eviction process was terminated by your BK, there is no judgment unless the LL got an order from the BK judge allowing the eviction to proceed. If you did not relinquish the business premises at or before the filing, you might be liable for post-petition business rent. The UD Registry is supposed to list eviction judgments. If they list a simple eviction filing which has not gone to judgment, you may be able to dispute that by contacting UD Registry directly. Sometimes, an attorney letter is useful in getting a favorable result.
You are not my client and I am not your attorney. This advice is given in the spirit of the AVVO platform and is based on general legal principles. You become a client when you enter into a formal retainer agreement with me.
When you say your "business" filed BK, that implies that your business was a corporation or other separate legal entity - which can not receive a discharge in a Ch7, much less the removal of a truthful public record (unless the landlord agreed to remove the entry). So I am a little confused by your question.
