The filing of bankruptcy will have an impact on credit. What takes place is that you will have an R9 listed for 6 years from the date you are discharged (which is usually between 9 and 12 months, so you are looking at roughly 7 years from the date you file for bankruptcy). This is a maximum time frame and can be rebuilt by following the steps provided at this ling: credit repair.
In terms of being able to apply for a mortgage, there is nothing preventing you from doing so, but usually most banks want to see at least 2 years from the date of discharge and some attempts to rebuild your credit.
