We totally expect Lenders to be flexible about Foreclosures and Shortsale; they will need some clients in the near future.
But BK's have been with us for many years; they have a history.

I have heard that 3 years is the waiting time for a BK; it might vary from Lender to Lender.
If it has been a while you might try. It would just cost you the Credit Check, (about $50).

Good luck and may God bless
