Evictions may be reported on your credit report under 'Public Record' if the landlord had to go to court to get the process started.  Those usually drop off after 7 years.

But, there are other reporting agencies landlords can use to find out if a potential tenant has an eviction record.  This will make things difficult.  You may need to explain why the eviction happened and be willing to post a bond or pay an additional security fee to be able to rent again.

In addition to what jwsister said, do some research on how to write a "Goodwill Letter" asking for the landlord's forgiveness and removal of the eviction from your report. Or try a "pay for delete" offer.
