Answer

If your bankruptcy is still pending (i.e. - NOT CLOSED BY THE COURT) you will need to get the Trustee's permission to do this. If your case is closed, you can sell your house at anytime. Contact your attorney for more information.

Answer

What kind of bankruptcy? 7? 13? If your bankruptcy case is still open, you cannot sell without notice to the trustee and a motion to sell. If you exempted the car, the proceeds may not be exempt. Check with your lawyer or a bankruptcy lawyer in your state.

Yes, you can buy a house for cash after filing for bankruptcy. The only issue is as to where those funds came from. If they were part of your estate at the time of filing and not disclosed, then you will have a problem.

When filing bankruptcy all assets are placed in a bankruptcy estate. Some assets are allowed to be protected and qualify for an exemption by the trustee. Items that are placed in exemption are permitted to be sold, but the trustee should be notified prior to the sale.

It depends on what type of bankruptcy your are filing, if the home is your primary residence and not an investment property, how much you owe, and if you are behind on your payments. It also depends on the state you are filing in.Usually, your house, if it is a primary residence, many states will allow you to keep your house as an exemption.
