Chapter 7 - 2+ years for most mortgage loan products. Your best bet would be to contact a few different lenders as there are some specialty portfolio loan products that allow for exception on the 2 year seasoning...

Depending on when the type of bankruptcy, it is two years from the date it was discharged for FHA mortgage and 3 years for a loan for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. There are also credit score requirements that need to be met. Consult with a mortgage professional to review your situation.
