Jason is right. If you are looking to rent, you are at the mercy of the landlord or property manager. I'm sure you understand that their interests are to minimize the possibility of having a "problem" tenant in their property.

If you are up front about the reason for the eviction, have a security deposit, and your credit is good, you just need to find the right landlord who will give you a break. I know it can be frustrating, but it's a numbers game, so make face-to-face contact with as many landlords as possible and eventually you will find one who will sympathize.

You didn't mention how much time you have in your current housing situation, but if your credit is good, you may be able to buy, in which case a prior eviction is of no consequence. A reputable lender can spend a few minutes with you to determine if this is an option for you. I have a few I can recommend if you'd like to contact me. Best of luck to you.

It is a little easier to identify a probable scam than to absolutely guarantee that an out of town landlord is legitimate.

A rental ad for a property that has a rental value of $1600, but is advertised for less than half that would surely be a scam. A fraudster may make statements that they are offering an unusually low rent because they had to leave town suddenly, or they want a nice god fearing family to take good care of their home while they are away, or some other made up story. ... more
