Even with a BK - as soon as his is discharged - they should be able to get some financing on a first. Karl would be more into what LTV would be possible at what rate. Usually it is about 65-75%. If that is the case, they wouldn’t necessarily need you and any secondary financing.
One possibility is they get a new first. You loan what is needed in a second. Possibly take some of their downpayment as an escrow cushion for the first - like 90 days.
Of course have the payments come to you and you pay the first.
Another option might be even more attractive. You go and finance whatever is needed. You may need very little down and it can come from them. Then wrap it to them on an AITD or “contract” at a higher rate. You might be able to give them the same or better rate than they would get on a new first on their own. Your yield will be spectacular. Most likely infinite. Again, I’d escrow some payments.
Of course there’s all that PacTrust and lease option stuff too.
Personally - I like wraps. Very simple, low risk.
