Okay?? The applicant went to court for $8,105 over 6 years ago. Credit history is one of many factors needed to find good tenants. It's the least of my concern but that's my opinion. 

@Nancy Carr not sure what the bank was suing her for but you can use the case number and recording number to go request the documents and read them. Either way the bank won and was awarded the judgement amount. Could be a loan or overdraft fees not sure based on the information. It should serve as a red flag but it was 6 years ago and a lot can change in a persons life in 6 years. 

Ok.  I get it.  It is a judgment against her for payment of the $8K.  I am assuming this could be rent not being paid  back in 2013.  Ugh.  I seem to have worse luck this time getting a decent tenant....
