Generally, it stays for 7 years.

Check your credit reports.  Go to annualcreditreport.com and get all 3 reports.  Look them over very carefully and file disputes on all WRONG information with the credit bureau reporting same.  They have to investigate and either verify or delete the disputed items.

If there is no record of the eviction, you shouldn't have any trouble getting a new apartment.  There could be a bit of difficulty if you do not have a rental history and references to show you are a reliable tenant.  So, you might need good character references.
