Chapter 7 bankruptcy
At least twenty four months must have elapsed since the discharge date of the borrower's Chapter 7. A full explanation will be required with the loan application. In order to qualify for an FHA loan, the borrower must qualify financially, have re-established good credit and have a stable job.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy
FHA will consider approving a borrower who is still paying on a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy if those payments have been satisfactorily made and verified for a period of 12 months. The court trustee's written approval will also be needed in order to proceed with the loan.
