Evictions in Indiana
Also known as “unlawful detainer”, here in Indiana, it is simply referred to as an eviction. Not sure if you were actually evicted or not? If you have questions about your rental record, there are easy ways to get a report. Start with a free online portal to access your rental history, such as MyRentalHistoryReport.com, to give you a clear understanding as to how many evictions are on your file.
Seal or Remove an Eviction
Regardless of why you might have an eviction your record, it may possible be hidden or concealed from your permanent record, but if you qualify. Not everyone with an eviction on their record qualifies for expungement. In order to be eligible, you must be able to prove that the eviction was unlawful or had no factual basis. For instance, if you were evicted because you were habitually unable to pay rent on time or failed to pay all of your rent in full for the length of your rental agreement, it would be very difficult getting the eviction expunged. But this does not mean it is not possible.
How to Confirm Your Eligibility
Always consult a criminal defense attorney that is well-versed in the Indiana expungement process if you wish to confirm your eligibility for eviction expungement. They can tell you if you have a strong case and whether or not you should move forward with your petition. Filing for expungement does cost money, so you would not want to pursue it before knowing if you are even eligible.
If you do have a valid petition, you will need the assistance of an expungement lawyer to ensure you full-fill the process correctly. Just one minor mistake can have your petition rejected, and you are not allowed to re-apply. A licensed criminal defense expungement attorney has the knowledge and experience to aggressively challenge your eviction and win your case. They will ensure your expungement goes to plan.
