Being evicted doesn’t directly affect your credit score, but if there is a legal judgement that you owe money to the landlord, that could damage your credit score. Money owed that is not paid to the landlord will likely be sent to a collection agency. Once the collection agency processes the landlord’s report, it will negatively impact your credit score. A lower credit score may make it more difficult to find housing after eviction. If your landlord does not report to a collection agency, your eviction should not affect your credit score.
