Undischarged Bankruptcy

August 7th, 2008 by Questions

I will not be discharged from bankruptcy until Feruary 2009. Is it possible to get a mortgage loan while not discharged? If so how hard will it be?

, A licensed trustee said:

There is no law prohibiting you from applying for a mortgage (or other credit) during your bankruptcy – you are simply required to disclose that you remain an undischarged bankrupt.

That being said, it is highly unlikely any reputable lender will approve you for a loan (or mortgage) on your own during your bankruptcy. If you have a qualified co-borrower or co-signer it may be possible, but they will get a lower interest rate if you are not included on the application.
