Write off Unaffordable Debt

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.
