How will a past bankruptcy or foreclosure affect my ability to obtain a new mortgage?
Past credit problems, such as bankruptcy or foreclosure, can have an effect on your loan approval. The type of 'event' (bankruptcy or foreclosure) and the time since this took place will all be a factor. Generally, the time period it will affect can range from 2 to 7 years.
