Some time ago, an unfortunate situation you
has forced to make a session of your property, or if you prefer,
you went bankrupt. Today, your situation
fnancially improved, you would like to
buy a property, but what will be the reaction of
mortgage lenders face this bankruptcy?
The majority of regular fnancial institutions will

What are these conditions?
• The fnancial institution you are addressing does not need to
