A Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not disqualify a borrower from obtaining a Suburban/Rural Development Loan if at least three years have elapsed since the date of the discharge of the bankruptcy. An elapsed period of less than three years may be acceptable if the borrower can show that the bankruptcy was caused by extenuating circumstances that were of a temporary nature, were beyond the applicant's control, and have been removed (e.g., loss of job, delay or reduction in government benefits or other loss of income, increased expenses due to illness, death, etc.).
A borrower may obtain a Suburban/Rural Development Loan after a foreclosure when three years have elapsed from a foreclosure with the loss of security or when one year has elapsed in a foreclosure with no loss of security.
Collections, Charge-Offs, and JudgementsUnder the Suburban/Rural Development Loan, collections must be paid in most cases, unless medical and under $1000 combined. but we may make exceptions depending on the account type, the amount owed, and the cause of the collection. All judgements must be paid, and charge-off accounts showing balances must be paid.
