Buying a House or Car in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Buying a House or Car in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

A chapter 13 bankruptcy can last around 3-5 years. In that time, big things can happen in life. Did you
know that you can buy a car or house while in a chapter 13 bankruptcy? The bankruptcy court has a streamlined process to allow you to apply for financing for both a house and car.

Finding a Loan in a Chapter 13

Whether it is for a car or a home, getting a loan while in bankruptcy may seem counterintuitive.  The reality is that people need a place to live and car to get around in.

For a car, shopping around will get you the best deal possible. A dealership will give you a sample buyer’s order that lays out the details of the loan that you then give to us for submission to the Court for approval.

For a house, there are several loan options available to you, such as FHA, VA, and USDA loans. When you find a loan that works for you, your bankruptcy attorney can file a motion that includes all the necessary information – such as home purchase price, down payment amount, and projected monthly mortgage payments.  The Court typically approves the application in about thirty days.
