How do I get an eviction off my record?

I lived with a guy about 3 years ago for six months... I paid my rent every month the whole time we lived there. He was not paying his rent, and I didn't find out until we were evicted. The landlord wrote me a note to pass onto other apartment managers that says that I was no problem living there. Three years later I am trying to get a place but this eviction is holding me back... even with the note from the landlord. What steps do I take to have this issue resolved?

Wiping an eviction off your record can be a real challenging thing to do. Contact the landlord to settle your unpaid debt. You should ensure that the landlord is willing to contact the credit bureaus to have them remove the eviction record from your file.

you need to write letters to the three credit agencies.. Experian, equifax, transunion, and challenge the entry. The government has a web page about it.. I don't have a link.. Sorry
