Chapter 13 Guidelines On Government And Conventional Loans: Difference Between Chapter 7 And Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Homebuyers and homeowners can qualify for a home purchase and/or refinance mortgage during and after bankruptcy. There are different agency mortgage guidelines on Chapter 7 versus Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy normally takes 90 days from the filing date to get discharged. There are mandatory waiting period after Chapter 7 Bankruptcy discharged date on government and conventional loans. You cannot qualify for a mortgage while the Chapter 7 is not discharged. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is often referred to as total liquidation. You need to take the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy means test to see if you are eligible to file. The means test will determine whether or not your income is eligible to file Chapter 7.
People with little to no income or no job and little to no assets are the ideal candidates for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Otherwise you need to file Chapter 13 Bankruptcy which is a debt restructure program over three to five years. The bankruptcy trustee assigned will determine what percentage of your income will be set aside to pay your creditors over a three to five year term. After the end of the term, the remaining debts is discharged and the person is debt free. People with a full time job and assets to protect are the best candidates for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. FHA and VA loans require a two year waiting period after Chapter 7 bankruptcy to qualify for FHA and/or VA loans. USDA loans require a 3 year waiting period after Chapter 7. Conventional loans require a 4 year waiting period after Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Borrowers trying to qualify for a mortgage after bankruptcy need timely payments after bankruptcy and no late payments.

Gustan Cho Associates have helped thousands of borrowers get an FHA and/or VA loan approval during the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy repayment plan and has never had a trustee not approve a mortgage loan. Trustees will always sign off on a modest traditional home purchase and/or refinance during the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy repayment period. This holds true even though the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is not discharged. However, all FHA and/or VA loans during Chapter 13 Bankruptcy repayment plan need to be manual underwriting. FHA and VA manual underwriting guidelines are exactly the same. You do not need trustee approval after Chapter 13 Bankruptcy discharged date. FHA and VA does not have any waiting period requirements after Chapter 13 Bankruptcy discharged date. If the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy discharged date has not been discharged for at least two years, it needs to be a manual underwrite. USDA loans do not allow borrowers to qualify for a USDA loan during Chapter 13 Bankruptcy repayment plan. There is a three year waiting period after Chapter 13 Bankruptcy discharged date to qualify for a USDA loan.
