California. I was sued for unlawful detainer and lost by default. The judge awarded the plaintiff the unpaid rent and court fees and judgement. I was the tenant and I have vacated the property. I would like to know if there is any way to get the judgement set aside or there are specific legal manuvers so the judgement and UD does not appear in my credit report? I understand an UD on a rental application is the kiss of death and will limit my options. California. San Diego County.
