GOOD QUESTION I WAS ASKED THIS WEEK....
Q: “Can I get a VA loan if I have had a recent bankruptcy?”
The fact you and/or your spouse have been adjudicated bankrupt does not in itself disqualify you for a VA home loan. The following rules apply:
· If the bankruptcy was discharged more than 2 years ago, it may be disregarded
· If the bankruptcy was discharged within the last 1 to 2 years, it is probably not possible to determine that you and/or your spouse are a satisfactory credit risk unless both of the following requirements are met:
· you and/or your spouse have reestablished satisfactory credit, and
· the bankruptcy was caused by circumstances beyond your and/or your spouses control (such as unemployment, medical bills, etc.)
· If the bankruptcy was discharged within the past 12 months, it will not generally be possible to determine that you and/or your spouse are satisfactory credit risks.
