An Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA) is an arrangement, approved of by the court between you and the people you owe.
It is a legal agreement, once it’s done interest is frozen and creditors can not contact you.
It can be cancelled by you if circumstances change
An Insolvency Practioner put them in place and you need to show you can’t afford to payback the debt as it stands.
There is a standard sum that you need to owe (£15,000 usually). Debt advisors who have shown they are fair to both parties can work to lower amounts. If you are eligible we can broker an IVA for debts as low as £7000.
You need an insolvency practitioner to do this, you can not do it yourself.
If you think an IVA is a good debt solution to your situation GET IN TOUCH.
