Lease question

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

The ugliest mark on my credit report is from a broken lease/eviction back in 2008.  CA now has the account.  Before I initiate any kind of action with CA with a DV or PFD, I am trying to determine under which category this debt will fall in and whether or not the statute of limiations has expired.  Anyone have experience?  Basically, I want to avoid opening a can of worms that will get me sued.

 

Thank you!

This would most likely be classified as a "written contract".   Check the SOL for this for your state of residence.

TeleRecovery.  The information on my credit report says "placed for collection".
