How long after being bankrupt can I apply for a mortgage? 

The effects of being bankrupt can last a long time, but how long do you need to wait until you can apply for a new mortgage?

Like any negative credit blips on your credit file, it makes it very difficult to obtain a mortgage when you have been bankrupt.

Most High Street lenders will not consider your application if you have been bankrupt within the last 6 years.

In the adverse market, lenders are more forgiving, many will consider lending 3 or  4 after your discharge date.

Currently, we even have lenders who will consider an application 12 months after the discharge date.

Having a bad or poor credit history will typically mean you will need a larger deposit. If you have previously been bankrupt it is likely the lender will ask for between 15% to 40% down.

If need any help obtaining a mortgage after being bankrupt speak to a mortgage advisor who, like us, is an expert in this field.
