Can I get a home loan 1 day after chapter 13 discharge? With what company?

Asked by verdalehassan, Chicago, IL Wed Apr 10, 2013

I have been in my chapter 13 plan since 2009. All payments have been on time and in full. It is set to discharge in June 2015. I was told by US Bank that even though FHA would allow for a loan the banks still wont approve it. I have to wait 2 years. Also I have looked into owner finance and rent to own. I cannot seem to find any legitimate people.

FHA allows financing if you are in Chapter 13 for one year, have made timely payments and your trustee allows purchase and financing of property.
US Bank must apply their own rules which is not uncommon for banks.
You should speak with a different lender and see what their requirements are.
If you would like a refferal for a good loan officer, please let me know.

In regards to your situation: every investor/bank/servicing agent has there own internal company overlays in regards to credit history etc.

For example Chase correspondent states that in order to qualify for a FHA loan post a Chapter 7 bankruptcy due to financial mismanagement it is a required wait period of seven years unless putting 10% down.

US Bank has there own internal overlays. (I can explain most likely why US Bank told you this if you reach out to me).

FHA states in regards to a Chapter 13 BK you are able to obtain a FHA insured mortgage provided the lender documents that:

1) one year on the payout period under the bankruptcy has elapsed
2) the borrowers payment performance has been satisfactory and all required payments have been made on time
3) the borrower has received written permission from banruptcy court to enter into the mortgage transaction

Give me a call if you would like additional information and clarification in regards to qualifying. I am available seven days a week to assist.

Way to go with the plan, and yes, there are a few lenders out there that will do this. Where are you looking to buy, and what type of housing?

As a matter of fact, if you've been making ontime payments all this time, you could get a loan now, with the Trustee's permission.

alright. here's one for you. i filed 7 4 years ago this august. got a great new job and tripled my income. got preapproved for fha. in the interim of looking for a home the town got a ruling from a judge for taxes.i dont think with the claim against it will go thru and the refuse to make a payment arrangement to satisfy the judgement. all i want to is find an affordable home and move forward.i never reinstated the homes loans that were included in the chapter 7 and dont intend to because the old house is underwater about double what its worth. and i havent heard from the lenders in 4 years, its totally the town . should i threaten to file 13 , which ultimately will get them less of a payment than i offered, spralled out over three years? and if they accept a payment plan in the end will it satisfy the judgement? if i get approved for the FHA i will move and walk away....
