Helocs have much tighter guidelines than 1st mortgages. It may be difficult to find a lender that would offer a Heloc with the information provided. Your best bet might be to check a local bank. Good luck!!

More than likely, not going to happen.. Because HELOC's are a 2nd position loan, the lender takes a greater risk, and therefore require a much more solid borrower. You have equity, so that's good, but you have a major derogatory event that scares most lenders.. the only thing that might work is if you have a long standing relationship with a local community bank or credit union.. There also is hard money, but it's unlikely they would do a 2nd position loan.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.
