Bankruptcy Home Loan - Today lenders have become less restrictive to people who have filed bankruptcy. Some lenders have home loan programs for people whose bankruptcy was discharged yesterday.
Depending on your specific circumstances, there are loan programs that will provide up to 100% financing after bankruptcy.
Having a bankruptcy on your credit report does not mean you can't buy a home. Believe it or not, those who have gone through bankruptcy are actually encouraged to find ways to build credit by taking on debt.
If you are still making payments to a chapter 13 BK and you have a fair amount of equity in your home you may qualify for what they call a bankruptcy buy-out. This is where you refinance your home and use the cashout money to pay off the BK. This is done quite often and has to be approved through the bankruptcy courts. This is a fantastic way for someone to pull themselves out of BK and start their life over again.
There are different types of 100% loans. You can
either get 1 loan for 100% or an "80/20" loan. Speak to your mortgage
professional to see which program is best for you!
