Can I Buy or Refinance a Car During Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?


Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy can be a difficult and overwhelming process. Even with the automatic stay protection, debtors may worry about their financial future, including whether they can still buy or refinance a car during bankruptcy proceedings.


The answer is yes, but there are qualification requirements and stipulations to consider before filing. People who are in the midst of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy may be able to purchase or refinance a vehicle through two methods—secured financing or reaffirmation. Secured financing is done by obtaining loan approval from an independent lender outside of bankruptcy court while a reaffirmation agreement involves coming to terms on an existing loan with the original creditor post-bankruptcy filing.


It’s important to remember that both options involve risk and should be thoroughly discussed with your attorney before proceeding.
