Individuals wanting to obtain a mortgage after bankruptcy need to get their financial affairs in orders long before applying for a loan. Obtaining credit is considerably more difficult today than it was just a year ago. The banking industry meltdown caused lenders to tighten regulations. Individuals with excellent credit find it challenging to obtain mortgage loans. Those with poor credit don't stand a chance.
In order to qualify for a mortgage after bankruptcy, borrowers must establish a history of paying their bills on time. Housing costs are usually the largest expense people have.
