Self Lender Question

Hello Everyone:

 

Our BK Chapter 7 was filed on 06-06-19.  Our MOC is on 07-15-19.  I was interested in getting a rebuilder loan with Self Lender.  Does anyone have experience with them?  Am I allowed to open accounts while chapter 7 is open?

 

Thank you,

Re: Self Lender Question

Hi,

 

I opened mines before my Ch.7 was discharged. It helped boost my scores up. Double check with your lawyer if you have one but I do believe it's okay. Also, I have no issues with the company or signing up. Everything has been smooth.

Some will tell you not to do it until you are discharged, but I got a Self Lender loan (no issues, you'll love it) after the MOC. I also got a Credit One card because I wanted to start rebuilding. I had a well known ruthless lawyer and he said go ahead on applying. Smiley Wink
