Home loan after bankruptcy: Get a mortgage after your bankruptcy is discharged

Causes of Bankruptcy and personal insolvencies 

There are many good reasons that people become bankrupt. Just because you have been bankrupt does not mean that you are bad or untrustworthy person. Often luck or rather misfortune can play a big factor in the equation. 

According to the Australian Financial Security Authority most causes of personal insolvencies are not business related. In fact in order of most to least the causes of personal insolvencies are:

  • Unemployment or loss of income;
  • Excessive use of credit;
  • Domestic discord or relationship breakdown;
  • Ill health;
  • Adverse legal action;
  • Gambling or speculation; and
  • Liabilities due to guarantees; 
Just because you have had some troubles in the past does not mean that you can’t get back on track. There are some specialist lenders that will consider your situation and will approve mortgages for people that can show that they are not at risk of financial troubles again.
