Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:

If a borrower is still paying on a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and the payments have been made for one full year the FHA will consider approving the borrower. There will also need to be a court trustee’s written approval and the borrower will have to give a full explanation for the bankruptcy filing on the loan application. The borrower will also need to establish good credit, qualify financially and have a stable income with a job.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:

Two full years, 24 months, must have elapsed since the date of discharge on the borrower and/or spouse’s Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Once again, a full explanation of the bankruptcy filing will need to be provided on the FHA loan application. The borrower must have re-established good credit, have a stable job and qualify financially.
