I am serving up this Q&A in an effort to help consumers during their quest on finding a lender that will work with them, during their CH 13 bankruptcy, so they can purchase or refinance a home. If you have been denied a loan, or working with a loan officer that does not understand the nature of bankruptcy law, and FHA rules, you have come to the right place.
Being a Denver Mortgage Broker, we have access to not only more programs, but we do not have to deal with the conservative overlays of many local, retail banks. Just because you can purchase or refinance under bankruptcy law, does not mean that bank has an appetite for this kind of loan, mainly because it is more work intensive, and involves everyone to come together, in a successful collaboration, understanding FHA rules, and bankruptcy procedures.
I will modify this article over time, as every loan is different and unique in it's own way, and will present it's own challenges, however the below Q&A should serve as a strong foundation of a question you are needing to get an answer on, as we have helped many homeowners over the years, get to the closing table, over coming these challenges.
