Best Answer

Your bankruptcy remains in the court's index forever. Lenders have access to special non-public databases which they use when a person applies for a loan. Your name will come up in the bankruptcy index. If the lender finds you lied on the application your application will be denied. It would be better to be truthful when you answer that question.

If your bankruptcy is nine and a half years old will it be taken off your credit report when it reaches the 10th year automatically?

Not necessarily. Sometimes it can take a credit bureau a few months (or even longer) to take an old record off your credit report. The best advice I can give is to request a credit report after 10 years have passed. If the bankruptcy is still listed, you can dispute the record directly with the credit bureau. You can get a free credit report at www.annualcreditreport.com or from most housing counseling agencies. You can find these agencies by looking on www.hud.gov.
