Credit After Bankruptcy

Will Bankruptcy Prevent Me From Obtaining Credit Again to Buy A House or Car?

Although bankruptcy filing damages your credit, it does not prevent you from borrowing again. There are several factors lender considers to lend to borrower: how much down payment the borrower proposed to put down, amount of borrower’s income net expenses, and borrower’s credit after bankruptcy filing. Is there any delinquency, eviction, tax liens, judgement, repossession, foreclosure, etc after your bankruptcy filing? Some lenders will outright reject your application because of recent bankruptcy filing. Other lenders will charge you a higher interest rate.
