How do I find out if an old apartment that was sent to collections is still on my credit report?
I moved out of an apartment I was sharing with my then-fiance. We broke the lease early, due to a bad break up. I paid my half of the move-out fees, etc. But he continued to live in the apartment for almost 2 months, and they ended up billing us for $2,300. I refused to pay that because I already paid my half of our agreed upon move out fees. I received a phone call from a collection agency a few months after the move, but I've never received any notices, or any more calls.

How do I find out if the debt has been paid, or if it is still in collections and on my credit report?
