I live in Florida, I rent a bedroom in a house and have a signed agreement/lease for 6 months. The landlord constantly rotates the rooms and there are different tenants coming in and out of the house. I want out of my lease on the justification that one of tenants put his hands around my throat (which is in a documented police report) and another tenant (whom i had never met before) i discovered unconscious in my back yard (which is also documented in a police report). My landlord agreed (over the phone not in writing) to allow me to discontinue the lease and then changed his mind. Even though all of my items are moved out of the house he is threatening to serve me with an eviction notice and court fees if i dont pay the rent on the first. Which I can live with accept getting a legitimate apartment will be difficult if the eviction is on the database. My question is if he serves this eviction notice will it show up in the same databases apartment complexes use? I just want to move somewhere else I'm tired of the drama.
Evictions are of public record – available to anyone who looks. All they have to do is punch in your name. You don't even have to be evicted. If the process has been started and a lawsuit filed, you are already on record as being sued for an eviction. Just because someone was found unconscious does not justify breaking your lease. Unfortunately, you chose to move into such an arrangement. The throat grabber has been warned. If you feel threatened, put a lock on your bedroom door. Move when your lease is up. Moving in with people you don't know is always a risk. Sometimes, it works out fine but, it would be a good idea to know something about them and the situation and not just going in to it blind.
He can evict you whether you rent a room or an apartment for non-payment of rent. He may subscribe to a tenant data base. Give him 30 days notice and leave. Then you wont have to worry about your credit or eviction history.
If the landlord files at the courthouse to have you evicted, that filing will be on your public record forever. This is true even if the eviction is cancelled or the landlord loses the case.
I am unaware of any database for tenants and evictions
maybe that is done in Fla but I have never heard of the kind of base of information
Yes a CCJ will show up and will remain on your record until you pay and even then you will have to get a certificate of satisfaction which will be placed on the record even after paying…… best not get a CCJ
Yes, it will be added to your background record for all future landlords to see.
you need to look up domestic violence provisions of landlord tenant law and see if they apply to you.
if the court orders the eviction/judgement it shows up on your record
