Yes 3 years, but always speak to your local mortgage broker.

Worst case is 3 years from final discharge provided you keep your credit up. Was your home included in the bankruptcy? That does impact how long you will have to wait according to lenders I have spoken with. Depending on all the details including if your home was included or not some lenders are able to give financing after 2 years.

I want to first say I am not a legal expert by any stretch of the imagination, however FHA allows lending to any persons after 3 yrs. However I would suggest to have a minimum of 3 open trade lines report to your credit to establish your credit worthiness again. A couple of suggestions would be to open a $2000-2500 cd account at your local bank and have it liked to secured credit account and have them report it. Secondly call Capital One and explain your situation and that you want to begin your road to credit again and they will give you a few options from secured credit to a starter account of $500. Thirdly if you are renting through an institution they can report your rental history to the credit bureaus. These are just some suggestions, however there are many tricks and tips of the trade I would be more than happy to share with you.

Feel free to call or email me directly.

3 years after you filed, again as Lilo stated - you have to keep your credit up!

There are finance options for you, but you will need to speak with a lender directly about getting pre-approved. Below are three GREAT finance professionals I highly recommend.

In a simple answer normally three years after it is discharged, assuming you have maintained a good records during this time.
