No, that will remain on your record. That fact that you have owed money will read "discharged in bankruptcy".

Bankruptcy can clear debts down to $0 but it does not erase information on a credit report. Prospective landlords will continue to see that you failed to pay rent or had other problems that led to an eviction even if no money is presently owed.

Filing a bankruptcy relieves you of the obligation to pay certain debts. It does not alter truthful reporting through credit bureaus or other vendors.

    Accurate items on credit reports can't be removed. Not by bankruptcy or the credit repair scams.

    I'm not certain it will clear away the historical fact of an eviction, but should show that you no longer owe the landlord any back rent.

    Unfortunately, bankruptcy can only erase your obligation for the amount that you owe. It will not eliminate the negative credit line. The only thing that erases the negative trade line his time. If you still owe the landlord money, a bankruptcy can make you debt-free but the damage to your credit is done.
