Yes. That reporting to a credit agency of an item of fact, is not an attempt to collect the debt. Your not expecting you mortgage debt to be discharged are you?
No you can not get a home equity line of credit but you can refinance and pay off the chapter 13 with the new mortgage.
Especially in todays credit environment, no. (Of course all credit decisions are in the hands of the lender).
No legitimate commercial lender will grant you credit while you are in a Chapter 7. Any applications will be turned down and will adversely affect your credit score. The only possible credit situation would be a mortgage restructuring, if you are reaffirming the mortgage, and even then they prefer to wait until you are discharged.
Bankruptcies (both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13) remain on your credit report for 10 years.
The amount of time a bankruptcy stays on your credit report after discharge differs between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the Chapter 7 stays on your credit report for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, after discharge, it shows for 7 years on your credit report.
If the mortgage payments are still being made then no - they won't be, however - if you default on the mortgage payments then yes - they will go after the cosigner and if it is not paid their credit will be effected.
Both have the same negative impact on your credit.
i am A Mortgage Broker The Bankruptsy Never Leaves The VCredit Report But if You Are Trying To Do Something With Your Credit Banks Go off The Discharge Date * 10 years for a dismissed chapter 7 and 7 years for a dismissed chapter 13.
A Chapter 13, whether it is dismissed or successfully receives discharge, is on your credit report for 7 years. A chapter 7 is on your credit report for 10 years. i called equifax and a discharged chapter 13 stays on for 7 years and a dismissed chapter 13 stays on for 10 years
of course it will, BKs are on a credit report for 10 years
You should find a good Mortgage Broker, they have access to more mortgage options than a bank does. Check the National Association of Mortgage Brokers for information on you local state chapter. Call around!
I filed Chapter 7 last year and when I applied for a credit card this year I was denied and the reason was "bancruptcy".
If your chapter 7 has been closed, yes - if you can find a lender for another mortgage. Your credit scores will have lowered because of the filing and discharge.
It will only become an issue if you apply for joint credit such as a mortgage, vehicle financing, and so forth.
On my website, I have an article on 10 tips to rebuilding your credit after bankruptch: http://www.chs-law.com/2005/05/rebuilding-credit-after-bankruptcy.html
A chapter 7 bankruptcy filing remains on your credit report for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy remains for seven years. Under chapter 13 bankruptcy you repay at least a portion of the debt, so it is removed a little sooner.
One day. You can apply any time. However, your chapter 13 stays on your credit report for 10 years.
Ten years from the date of original filing.
Yes. But not as bad as if you filed chapter 13 yourself. Not fair, eh?
Yes converting a Chapter 13 to a 7 will further lower your credit score. It will show up on the public records section at the begining of the credit report. Once as an terminated chapter 13 and a second public record showing the filing of the Chapter 7. Each public record reduces your score. You can potentially be discharged from a Chapter 7 sooner and that's will be the time the clock will start ticking to eventually make it disappear from your credit report which I believe is 7 years for most derogatory entries
You cant eliminate, but you can "strip-off" the 2nd mortgage if the house value is LESS than the 1st mortgage amount. In that case the 2nd mortgage would no longer be considered secured and would be treated as an unsecured creditor, like a credit card debt.
