An IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) allows you pay a single reduced amount towards your debts based on what you can afford. A monthly payment Arrangement will last 5-6 years. After this time any included debt which remains unpaid is written off.
Only unsecured debts are included. You must continue paying secured debts such as your mortgage. If you are a home owner your property gets legal protection but you may have to release equity to increase the amount you pay to your creditors.
The Arrangement is a legally binding agreement to settle your unsecured debts. It was introduced into law in 1986 and is available in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
An IVA has various affects. To what extent these will have an impact on you will depend on your financial and family circumstances
