An IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) is a popular debt solution for people who cannot afford their unsecured debts but want to pay as much as they can realistically afford to them. Its growth as a solution for unmanageable debts has been significant over the last 10 Years.
Put simply it is a legally binding proposal of payment to your debts based on what you can realistically afford to pay over usually just 60 months. It allows you to put forward a fair and equal offer of repayment to your debts were there is no ability for you to repay them in full. It freezes interest and charges to ensure your debt cannot increase and protects you and your essential assets such as your home or car against any further collections activity by your debts.
You are basically explaining to your creditors that you want to repay them but you can’t afford to make the full monthly payments and asking them to freeze interest and charges so that you can pay as much as you can afford over the next 60 months and then write off the rest that you can’t afford to repay.
Whether an IVA is suitable depends on your personal circumstances but in short if you meet the basic criteria below it could be an option for you:
• You owe more than £3,500 of debts (either yourself or jointly with your partner)
• You owe money to two or more debts
• You have a regular income from benefits and/or employment and can afford to pay £51 or more to your creditors, or you have a lump sum to offer from savings, assets or investments.
• You are struggling to meet your contractual payments to your creditors each month.
• You are resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland
If you are struggling with unmanageable debts, want to regain control and ease the stress of dealiong with the companies you owe money to whilst securing an affordable repayment over a realistic time then an IVA could be an ideal solution for you.
We can assist you in preparing an affordable offer of payment to your debts and agree with your creditors to write off the debt you cant afford to repay in the time agreed. IVA’s are usually agreed over a period of 60 months as this is considered a reasonable time for you to maintain a repayment to your debt.
We will deal with all of the communication with your creditors before and after your IVA is approved and then once approved, prevent them from any further contact with regard to repayment of the debt and stop any further collections activity including charges against your assets, County court judgements, attachments of earnings orders and even bankruptcy.

" I really don’t know what I would have done without the IVA. I was recommended by my brother’s friend back in 2008 who was in a similar situation. Definitely the right thing for me to do. I am now building up my credit status so I can hopefully obtain a mortgage in the future. I am more careful with money / finances now and don’t take credit for granted! Thanks very much for everything the team has done for me!"Read More
