Can You Qualify For Home Loan With Late Payments After Bankruptcy?

A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is a federal debt relief law that a consumer can use to wipe out all or most of their debts and have a fresh start on their financial life. Debts such as credit card debts, judgments, installment loans, personal debts, and other non-government debts can discharged through a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. There are certain debts that cannot be discharged through a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy such as student loans, government loans, child support payments, and tax debts and tax liens. Once a debt from a creditor is discharged through a bankruptcy, the consumer no longer owes the debt and they are no longer responsible to pay that debt. All unsatisfied judgments also gets discharged and the consumer does not have to worry about getting any future collection activities from the judgment creditor such as wage garnishments, bank levy, or having liens placed on their assets. Home buyers can qualify for a home loan after a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, however, late payments after bankruptcy is often frowned upon mortgage lenders.
