Fha will accept a borrower 2 years past the discharge. But we still watch the credit scores, and no late pays post bk. You might need to re-establish new good credit. Please work with a licensed loan officer to help guide you.

Hello, You asked a great question. Yes, It's very possible that a bank could qualify you, usually two years after bankruptcy discharge. Keep in mind, no late payments on any current credit if you're trying to establish a good credit rating. I suggest you talk with a licensed loan officer.

Hope that helps!

All the best,

You need to speak with the right mortgage lender, who can go over your options, some of which may be down the road. Don't be afraid of rejection, ask a lot of questions, and ask for help in achieving your home purchase goals. I can recommend several, but you only need one: Sean O'Donnell, Patriot Bank Mortgage, Senior Loan Officer, 210-860-7783. He is phenomenal, honest, knowledgeable and should be helpful. Best of luck to you and your family.
