Can you buy a house after Chapter 7 with a co-signer? Yes, having a co-signer can improve your chances of getting a mortgage after a bankruptcy.
When you file Chapter 7, you are no longer legally obligated to repay the loan. “Legally obligated” is the key phrase here because Chapter 7 does not get rid of the lien on the property. Your lender still has a right to the property if the debt is not paid. So basically, you don’t have to pay your mortgage.
