How long do I have to wait after bankruptcy to get a VA Loan?
A bankruptcy or foreclosure doesn't automatically disqualify you from getting a VA Loan, but a lot of it depends on when the event occurred. In most cases, veterans will not be able to secure VA financing for two years after a bankruptcy or foreclosure.
The VA has some exceptions that allow military members to participate in the program before that two year mark, but remember that VA-approved lenders and not the VA ultimately issue the loan. Lenders have more stringent standards that rise above the VA's requirements, and that means there are almost no ways for a borrower to secure financing for at least 1 to 2 years.
