Do you mean dismissed?? or discharged?? Dismissed--you didn't do the bankruptcy and there are credit problems. You could possibly refi depending on your scores--You will need scores 500 and above and EQUITY in the property in order to refinance. Most times if the lender will refi--it is usually at 75% LTV (loan to value). In other words, the lender will only use up to 75% of the value--no more. Discharged-- usually it takes 2 years before a lender will refi the loan. Although again there are lenders that will depending on scores, downpayment money and the explanation as to what happened.

Where can you refinance if you had a chapter 13 that was dismissed and have your late mother's debt on your credit report causing liens on your house?

There are many lenders including FHA that you can do a refinance through after or even during a chapter 13. With FHA from the time the chapter 13 is intituted the owner of the property must make on time payments for one year. During the chapter 13 the new loan amount must equal the present payment. As for your mothers debt if the home is liened they must be payed off at closing unless you can go to court and prove the creditors had no right to lien the property. A very expensive and time consuming proposition.
