While there are a lot of questions when it comes to house foreclosures, the following are two basic questions that people are asking –
How long do I have to wait before getting a home loan after having a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
This totally depends on what type loan you are now applying for and what caused the Bankruptcy. VA and FHA generally require 2 years since discharge date with reestablished credit. USDA generally requires 3 years since discharge date with re-established credit. Conventional generally requires 4 years from discharge date with reestablished credit. If there are extenuating circumstances, such as loss of job, death or serious illness of wage earner, then that will cut the time required from discharge date by about 1 year.
How long do I have to wait before getting a home loan after a house foreclosure?
Again this depends on the type of loan you are applying for and what caused the foreclosure. FHA and USDA generally require 3 years from date foreclosure completed. VA generally requires 2 years from date foreclosure completed. Conventional generally requires 7 years from date foreclosure completed. Again if there were extenuating circumstances and credit has been re-established then those times can be shorter.
