With an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) Debt Management, you could be free of debt within 60 months / 5 years. IVAs are an agreement which is legally binding between you and your creditors which is an alternative to bankruptcy. IVA’s should only be considered by those who are in severe debt.
- Have a regular income
- Have accumulated debts over £10,000
- Have debts from 2 or more creditors
- Do not want to go bankrupt
- Then an IVA could be a solution for your debt problems
An IVA allows you to repay an affordable monthly sum to your creditors over a period of 60 months. Providing you maintain the payments, your creditors will write off the debts you cannot afford.
During the term of the IVA, you are obliged not to take any more credit, and you must comply with the terms or the agreement will fail.
Our initial advice is free, however if you decide to proceed with a plan then fees will apply - Click here for details on our fees
Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVA) were introduced in 1986 and have recently become the latest big news story in the national media regarding personal financial issues.
The number in use has been growing steadily during the last twelve months, raising on average over 25% per quarter. This is due to the rise in consumer debt, bankruptcies and the recent changes in bankruptcy law.
IVA’s are an alternative to bankruptcy.
An IVA sets out how the debtor is going to repay the creditors, usually over a period of five years.
An insolvency practitioner (IP) acts as the intermediary between the two parties.
