There is the possibility, although the probability is low. Most consumers find it impossible to get financing with an ongoing Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Usually, you need to have at least 12 months after the BK is discharged before you are lendable again. That being said; there are programs which do not consider credit at all. Given the right broker who is experienced, and enough money, anything can be accomplished.

You must also ask your Trustee for permission to assume additional debt.

I found this helpful: Current Bankruptcy If you are currently in chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may be able to qualify for a home loan. In fact, some lenders can actually provide FHA loans at low interest rates for borrowers in chapter 13. Re: HUD Handbook section 4155.1 Rev-4. "A borrower paying off debts under Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Act may also qualify if one year of the pay-out period has elapsed and performance has been satisfactory, and the borrower also receives court approval to enter into the mortgage transaction."(http://www.emortgage.com)

I am trying to use the FHA to get a home loan while in chapter 13 and I have been trying to get them to clear a house since August. I made over $80,000 last year and all the BK judge would approve for me to have in a loan was $45,000 so don't get your hopes up no matter how good you have done with the bankruptcy. I have the money taken out of my check every much so I have never missed a payment and this process is a nightmare that has made me cry night after night. The mortgage broker says I would have been better off if I have filed chapter 7. Isn't that a kick in the teeth!

ANSWER

I am currently in a Chapter 13. Due to divorce and my husband's bills which I got stuck with. I thought I could get some reduced rates on my bills with Chapter 13. NOT. The lawyer told me that I would be clean after bankruptcy. NOT. I would have been better off just to NOT PAY all the unsecured debt. That is what my ex did, and guess what? They laid all that debt on me. He is scott free and bought a NEW HOUSE. Even though I was NOT on his cards. We were married so I am stuck with the debt. Don't EVER declare bankruptcy. Just don't pay the unsecured debt if you can't pay it. Your credit will be trashed no matter what and unpaid unsecured debt looks better than a bankruptcy. The only one who gets rich on bankruptcy is the lawyers. I've been trying to get a loan to pay off the rest of the bankruptcy and get back to normal but I can't. My Chapter 13 takes $2500 out of my $3220 monthly pay. And I can't even fix my roof. I can barely pay for food and because I make $3220 per month I don't qualify for any aid of any kind. It's a nightmare. NEVER NEVER NEVER DECLARE BANKRUPTCY

Can you file for bankruptcy while getting a home mortgage loan modification?

You cant have both concurrently. I know most servicers and Fannie guidelines for loan modifications do not allow a loan modification while in Bankruptcy. There is a bill floating around congress that would allow Bankruptcy judges to do cram downs and modifications of loan term in Bankruptcy court. This would be the most practiable way, However there is a huge lobby for the banks that dont want this bill passed. Do the mod, then file the BK. I'm assuming your filing a Chapter 13? You did not specify in your question.
