Once a new landlord knows about your eviction, she might be hesitant to rent a home to you without proof that you’ve attempted to rectify your damaged rental history.

If you owe money for your eviction and can’t afford the entire balance due, ask your previous landlord if you can set up a payment plan. Meet with a real estate attorney, if you can afford to do so, as this may give you a better shot of establishing a payment plan. Some evictions cost more than $10,000, especially if you are charged for storage and the entire duration of your broken lease, so keep that in mind as you decide whether to hire a lawyer.
