Buying a Car After Bankruptcy Discharge

Despite the fact that a bankruptcy discharge will be visible on your credit report for 10 years afterward, you still have the ability to secure an auto loan or mortgage. Depending on your unique situation, we will help you determine what strategy and tactics may be in your best interests, including:

  • Waiting a few years to buy a car
  • Purchasing a car that is within your means
  • Paying off the loan in a short time period
  • Saving for a large down payment

Buying a Home After Bankruptcy Discharge

It is important to improve your credit score before securing a mortgage after a bankruptcy discharge, but you may be able to obtain a home loan within 18 to 24 months, depending on your situation. Securing an auto loan, taking out lines of credit or opening a secured credit card, and staying current on payments can help improve your credit score.

An improved credit score will help you secure a mortgage with a lower interest rate. Other factors that will help are saving for a 10 to 20 percent down payment and looking in home price ranges that will allow for monthly mortgage payments not more than 25 percent of your monthly net income.

Our experienced legal counsel can guide you through the complicated process, protect your rights and help you sculpt a financial strategy that will allow you to shield your well-being from potential liabilities and risky situations.
