I bought a second-hand bike in good condition, however the hydraulic brakes chatter under braking load.

It's a Kona Splice with Tektro hydraulic brakes.
The front rotor vibrates worse than the rear, but both suffer this problem.
I have properly cleaned with IPA and sanded off the glazing on the pads, as well as the rotors. The problem here is that the chattering affects the bedding in process, so I've not been able to improve the feel.
It feels like the pads are slipping under braking, but the rotor bolts are tight.
Some online posts mention a loose headset could be the cause, however my rear suffers in the same way, so it's not so likely.
I have front suspension forks, but the chatter occurs when locked out or open.
I haven't touched the brake reservoir yet, so I'm hopeful that it's just a fluid issue.
Could it be caused simply by low fluid or air in the system? Will a full re-bleed fix it?
