Sure can....It's even easier than getting one before a Chapter 7. Their called Day 1 after Bankruptcy loans. Surpisingly, your credit scores are pretty decent after the discharge. The creditors also know that you can't file again for several years, so they don't have to worry about you running back to the courts for help. The interest rates run about 6%...again, better than you would have gotten prior to the Chapter 7...

Can you get a home loan if you have recently filed a chapter 7?

Not if the bankruptcy is pending. Once it has been discharged (preferably closed) then it is possible to apply for credit. Whether or not the applicant is extended credit of any sort is the decision of the lending institution.

If a chapter 7 bankruptcy has not been discharged is it a law stating a lender cannot offer you a home mortgage or would they just be crazy to do so?

If your wife is in a Chapter 13 plan and is the borrower on the mortgage can the husband apply for a refinance loan to pay off the first mortgage?

Yes! The only thing is the chapter 13 will have to be discharged at closing. Depending on how long she has been in the bankruptcy, this may not be a big hassle. It is impossible to refinance a home in a chapter 13 without the BK being discharged.

Is foreclosure done quicker if home has been discharged in bankruptcy?

A home is not discharged in bankruptcy. The mortgage(s) and home equity loans, lines of credit, etc., are discharged, but you have to abandon the real estate in the bankruptcy. That means the mortgagee can go ahead with a foreclosure if there was none before the filing, once the Chapter 7 is closed. Chances are the mortgagee would ask for relief from stay to go ahead with the foreclosure. The trustee may get any excess from the sale, unless it was exempted.
