FHA after bankruptcy - First and foremost lenders will want to see that you have re-established your credit after the bankruptcy. Make sure that you do not miss any payments. If you are buying a home or refinancing make sure you can provide the bankruptcy discharge paperwork.

Chapter 7 

At least two years must have elapsed since the discharge date of the borrower and / or spouse's Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, according to FHA guidelines. This is not to be confused with the bankruptcy filing date. 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 credit and have a minimum 500 credit score.

Chapter 13

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 one year. The court trustee's written approval will also be needed in order to proceed with the loan. The borrower will have to give a full explanation of the bankruptcy with the loan application and must also have re-established good credit, qualify financially and have good job stability.
