obtaining a mortgage while undischarged from Bankruptcy
March 3rd, 2011 by Questions
I went bankrupt in August and have not yet been discharged from Bankruptcy. Can I purchase a home from the bank while I am not yet discharged? The home is for a very small amount and I want to approach the bank, however, I wanted to make sure this is something I am allowed to do while undischarged from bankruptcy. Am I allowed to obtain a mortgage? thank you!

As long as you disclose to the mortgage company that you are an undischarged bankrupt, you will not be breaking any rules/laws if you apply for a mortgage while you are in your bankruptcy.
Having said that, I don’t want you to be hopeful that you will be approved. Mst financial institutions will not approve you for a mortgage until you have been discharged from your bankruptcy for at least 2 years. Any companies that will approve you will charge very high interest and require a co-signer.
Please be VERY careful – it will probably be better to wait thasn to deal with one of the high interest lenders.
