Bankruptcy: How long do I have to wait to get a VA Home loan if I have had a bankruptcy?


By Frank Lozano, VA Loan Specialist,

Depending on the chapter you filed you will have to wait between 12 and 24 months from discharge before you can use your VA benefits to buy a home. On a Chapter 7, you have to have the bankruptcy discharged for 2 years (24 months). On a Chapter 13, it has to have been discharged for 12 months or if it is not discharged you have to prove that you have made timely payments on it for a minimum of 12 months.
