Is IVA really a solution to debts?
Most debts are taken in times of extreme need. While a debt solves the problem for the moment, the creditors are a constant threat looming above your head. Day and night the single thought which consumes you is the repayment of the arrears to your creditors.
As a resident of UK you have two options: You could either invest time, money and effort in a Debt Management plan, which though is quite heard of is not really legally binding or you could opt for the legally binding IVA or the Individual Voluntary Arrangement governed by the Insolvency Act of 1986.
While the IVA is a legal way to pay off your arrears, there are number of points you need to consider before you opt for this. An IVA is a legally binding contract between you and the creditor in which both of you have agreed on certain amounts of fixed monthly payments for a fixed period of time which will help you clear your arrears. An interest amount is frozen on the onset of the IVA.While this sounds good on paper, there is a flip side to the IVA:
You cannot get an IVA if you have arrears of less £ 15,000. Which means you need to be really heavy in debts for any form of legal act to intervene,Your IVA proposal is subject to approval only if 75 percent of your creditors agree to your proposal. The chances of this happening are only then when the creditors calculate they will receive more from you now than when you go bankrupt. They make the money in the form of interests and commissions charged in the IVA
An IVA requires you to release any equity you have, like home or property, towards part repayment usually towards the end of the IVA. This means that you might have to remortgage your home towards the completion of an IVA arrangement. Is that not like jumping from the frying pan to the fire? If you are anyways going to draw a double mortgage on your home, is that not adding to the financial responsibilities you have to pay off? Many IVA applicants have headed towards bankruptcy towards the end of the IVA owing to this
IVA is really not a choice for all.
Some individuals facing bankruptcy might be forced into an IVA by a court order Since an IVA is legally binding, the monthly payments agreed by the IVA cannot be avoided. Add to it the further mortgages and claims on equity and it makes one reconsider the advantages of this so called debt release plan.
