Can you get out of a student tenancy agreement?
A: You must first check your contract. If there is a clause allowing you to give notice to quit, then, providing proper notice is given, you could move out. If you have signed a fixed term agreement with no such clause then you remain liable for the rent and need to find a replacement tenant.
Do evictions show up on background checks?
The answer is yes. And in order to determine tenant liability, the vast majority of landlords these days pull rental background checks on new applicants. How long do evictions stay on your record? In most states, evictions stay on your record for up to seven years.
How do you know if you have an eviction on your record?
Eviction records can be found in a separate rental history report, which can be obtained through a tenant screening company or through Experian RentBureau. If you had an unpaid debt following your eviction, your landlord or leasing company could have sold that debt to a collection agency.
