If you're struggling with unaffordable debt you could be eligible to write off part of what you owe. UK residents have a right to debt relief and there are a number of tried and tested debt solutions that can help not only write off debt but also reduce pressure from creditors and freeze interest and charges.
Debt relief solutions such as an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) can be a positive way to manage problem debt.
An IVA is a formal debt solution that offers the opportunity to write off up to 81% of unsecured debts such as credit cards, utility bills and payday loans to name just a few.
|Total amount owed:||£18,303|
* monthly payments are based on individual financial circumstances
An Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) is a formal debt solution that creates alegally binding agreement between you and the people you owe money to. You may decide to enter an IVA if you’re struggling to repay the total amount of unsecured debt you currently have but can repay some.
Yes, an IVA will have an impact on your credit rating as it will show on your credit report for six years after it has been approved. However, it’s important to note this is the case for most debt solutions and your credit score will likely already have been affected by being in debt in the first place.
Once your IVA is complete you will be offered a fresh start to begin rebuilding your credit rating.
In most cases entering an IVA won’t affect employment. However, in certain professions, such as accountants and solicitors, having an IVA may mean that you can no longer practice or you may only be able to practice under certain conditions.
Once you enter an IVA, creditors can take no further action against you and can’tcontact you directly.
An IVA can be a positive way to manage unaffordable unsecured debt and allow you to better manage your monthly finances.
In an IVA a single monthly payment is agreed with your current financial situationtaken into consideration – this payment is then divided between the people you owe money to. During the course of your plan all interest and fees associated with your debts are frozen.
At the end of the IVA the remaining debts are written off and you can begin your debt-free future.
