What is an Individual Voluntary Agreement?
What does IVA mean?
An IVA is an acronym for Individual Voluntary Agreement and whilst it is similar to bankruptcy, it is less severe, but it is a form of insolvency. Basically, you are entering into a legally binding contract with all your creditors so that you can pay them off at a more flexible rate. The problem is, you need to go to court to have an IVA set up and you also need a qualified insolvency practitioner to work on your behalf, which can cost up to £5000.00. If you go through a debt management company, they will also add their fees on top of that making it even more expensive. People that are considering going down this form of insolvency solution usually find that it is more cost effective to clear their existing debt with a bridging loan. Give us a call to find out if this is possible for you. All calls are private and confidential and discretion is always assured.
What happens to debt?
Your insolvency practitioner will apply for a court date that yourself and he or she will attend. Your creditors are also invited. He will try to work out a new, more flexible payment plan with all your creditors. Any saving you have can be entered into the agreement from the start to lower your initial debt. Also if you have private or job related pensions, this may also be offered up as a way of reducing your debt before a new payment plan is agreed. Any property may have to be remortgaged. All this is designed to clear or pay off as many as your old creditors as quickly as possible, or at least, to pay the down. Any none work related assets may also be sold, for example, if you have a boat, this could be sold off. A new set repayment plan, usually over 5 years will then be agreed. Typically we get approached for bridging loans to stop an IVA. Give us a call for info.
Should I become IVA?
Basically, people enter into an IVA because they are really struggling with their finances. Maybe through a job loss, or business failure, a change in your economical climate can make you feel that going 'bankrupt', which an IVA isn't, it's a frm of insolvency but not bankruptcy, there are technical differences is the only option. However, first and foremost, whilst it may appear attraactive in that your repayment plans are made affordable, an Individual Voluntary Agreement can affect other parts of your life. Consider any savings you have disappearing. Any private or work related pensions can also be swallowed up. Remortgaging of property (hang on, I thought this was to lower outgoing payments?). None work related assets stripped. Becoming an IVA is personal but you do have choices. Call to see if a bridging loan can clear your debt and sort you finances.
Is refinancing better?
You have to work out what is best for you. Don't be entering into an form of new agreement unless you are one hundred percent certain it is best for you and not your creditors. On the one hand, you had the five thousand pounds Insolvency practitioner, plus any debt mamangement company fees. Then savings, pension and asset stripping. Plus if you are a professional like an accountant or solicitor, it can affect your job. And maybe having to remortgage as well. Then you are still repaying for up to five years at a reduced rate. However, bridging loans are cheap to set up, with us, only your valuation fee of the property being used as security is needed. You can then use the bridge to clear off all your debts. All you have then is a monthly interest fee until you exit the finance by remortgaging or selling a property. Call today to find out more.
Using bridging finance when in an IVA.
We can still lend to you even if you have entered into an Individual Voluntary Agreement, however, we need consent from your supervisor. Once consent is given we can set up a bridging loan. Most people use this to clear off all their debts and close the IVA, however it is not up to us to tell you what to do with the money you borrow. That is entirely your decision.
However, your IP may make it a stipulation that you clear off all the creditor's outstanding debts. Once you get through paying them off, you need to think about an exit plan. If you borrow £25,000.00, to clear your IVA, you need to think how are you going to repay. Remortgage the property you used as security or just resell and end up with the proceeds from the sale in your bank account. Speak to us directly.
