Car Loans for Discharged Bankrupts

Declaring bankruptcy will always make it more difficult to get a personal car loan or business work vehicle loan in Australia. However, becoming informed on what your discharged bankruptcy car finance approval total equates to will provide a better insight into what kind of car you might be able to purchase. You might just not be able to afford that ferrari you always wanted straight off the bat but we can get you into an affordable new vehicle that is for sure. 

Once you receive your car loan, maintaining a good payment history that is full of on-time payments will allow you to eventually establish a positive payment history on your credit file and ensure that future car loans will become easier to attain.

A discharged bankruptcy essentially prevents creditors from taking any further action, such as levying additional fees and charges, regarding debt collection.

In terms of time, getting a car loan after bankruptcy, even if you’re discharged bankrupt, will depend on whether you’re experiencing a chapter 7 or chapter 13. When dealing with chapter 7, you can expect your bankruptcy to stay open for 3-4 months. 

Before you can receive a personal or business car loan from a standard auto lender, you’re going to need to have what’s called a 341 meeting with your creditors to discuss any existing issues regarding your current debts. This is why turning to bankruptcy car loans can help you get that car you need right away.


What happens after declaring bankruptcy?

What happens financially and from a legal standpoint after you declare yourself bankrupt will depend on the type of bankruptcy declared.

The 3 main types of bankruptcy are: 

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

In regards to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy you may be forced to liquidate certain assets (such as  a house or card) to pay off all or at least a portion of your debt. Which assets are eligible depends entirely on your income level, but for the most part, this may be an option for you if you have little to no disposable income.


Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Secondly, Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is basically the same thing as Chapter 13 Bankruptcy but is constrained to businesses. During a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, businesses normally get to keep all of their assets and continue business as usual while coming to some agreement to either pay off their debts regularly or have them dismissed.


Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Lastly, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is outlined by coming to an agreement once you qualify. This allows you to pay off your debts in a 3 – 5 year window, but this bankruptcy debt agreement may allow you to keep all of your assets while doing so. During this time, some of your debts may end up being discharged.


How to Check the Discharged Bankrupts list?

Check with your bankruptcy court clerk to know for sure if your bankruptcy has been discharged. Most commonly the clerk will send you a notification via mail and email informing you that your bankruptcy has been discharged and your bankruptcy period has ended.


How will Bankruptcy affect your credit score?

Bankruptcies can stay on your credit report for up to 10 years and will usually decrease your credit score 150 to 230 points. The drop is enough to take a good credit rating and turn it into a bad credit rating when being considered by a bank with a credit license. This dip in credit score is why Auto Credit Now is preferred by so many people seeking car loans after bankruptcy because we help everyone with a chance at getting a car loan

“At the start of last year I wanted to get finance for a car. With a not so good credit rating and very limited finances I found myself running up against brick walls, so to speak. I found Auto Credit Now and Glen while doing an online search. Glen was very professional, approachable and contactable anytime. I am now enjoying my new car and find it very reliable and hassle free.” – Patrick
