A: I am unclear as to your current status. IF you are actually out, you need to go to the first court appearance and tell the Judge. As long as you are out by the time of your appearance, the case should be dismissed and there will be no eviction on your rental record. Just so you know, you have not been evicted unless and until a Judge in court Orders you out. Until then you have "voluntarily" left, though the landlord may have terminated your tenancy. There will be not a public record of that, only if a Judge officially evicts you after trial or your default.
