bankruptcies and foreclosures
| Print |
How long do bankruptcies and foreclosures stay on a credit report?
Bankruptcies and foreclosures can remain on a credit report for seven to 10 years.
Some lenders will consider an borrower earlier if they have reestablished good credit. The circumstances surrounding the bankruptcy can also influence a lender's decision. For example, if you went through a bankruptcy because your employer had financial difficulties, a lender may be more sympathetic.
If, however, you went through bankruptcy because you overextended
personal credit lines and lived beyond your means, the lender probably
will be less inclined to be flexible.
