How to rent a house during bankruptcy
|Can Chapter 7 be removed early?||You can't remove bankruptcies from your credit report unless they are inaccurate. Bankruptcies will automatically be removed from your credit report after seven or 10 years.|
|Can you have a 700 credit score after Chapter 7?||The reality is that most of our clients have a score in the low 600s, or even higher, within one to two years after they file bankruptcy and obtain a discharge. Some of our clients end up with a 700 score within 2-3 years after their case is filed and they receive a discharge.|
- How long does it take to get 650 credit score after Chapter 7?
- Over this 12-18 month timeframe, your FICO credit report can go from bad credit (poor credit is traditionally less than 579) back to the fair range (580-669) if you work to rebuild your credit. Achieving a good (670-739), very good (740-799), or excellent (800-850) credit score will take much longer.
- How many points does a Chapter 7 drop credit score?
- If you know your score and file for bankruptcy, get ready to watch it plunge. A person with an average 680 score would lose between 130 and 150 points in bankruptcy. Someone with an above-average 780 score would lose between 200 and 240 points.
