If you live in Indianapolis, Indiana, having filed a bankruptcy is no bar to obtaining a mortgage. There are many lenders who offer different programs suited to borrowers who have filed for bankruptcy.

You should know that filing for bankruptcy does not exclude you from being offered a mortgage. It merely means that you are a higher risk borrower, which in turn means that the rates of interest may be higher and the mortgage fee may be somewhat more than what is charged from other borrowers - but getting a mortgage is still something you can do.  Currently, to obtain the lowest rate, debtors that have made 12 months of payments to the Chapter 13 Trustee or 2 years have passed from their Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge to qualify for FHA financing.  Of course, you may other issues to consider to be eligible – like if you had a foreclosure.

Filing bankruptcy initially damages your credit score, but as your creditors zero out the balances reported to the credit bureau, your credit picture will improve and lenders  may be more inclined to consider your mortgage application favorably.

Financing Issues

If you are currently in a chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is possible for you to refinance or incur new secured debt for the purchase of a home. However, this requires obtaining the bankruptcy court's permission. When seeking permission, you will have to provide the court with the terms of the debt and typically show why incurring the debt is in your best interest. A qualified Indianapolis bankruptcy attorney will be able to guide you.

Lenders usually look at the type of bankruptcy you filed when deciding on the type of mortgage financing to offer. For a bankruptcy under chapter 7, the lender will look at the date of discharge; whereas in a chapter 13 bankruptcy, they will consider the date of filing when making a decision to approve your mortgage.

If you live in Indianapolis, Indiana, the fact that you have filed a bankruptcy should not deter you from applying for a mortgage. Your financial position may even be much stronger post-bankruptcy, and you will be able to secure your family's financial future.
