I have an IVA for £23,254 (total debt to unsecured creditors is £41,900), which was entered into on 15 december 2006 i pay £496 a month. I am going to sell my house which should raise approx £15,000 profit and move back in with my parents because i am single and the interest rates and 2 children are getting too much for me financially. How do I go about offsetting this against the debt? Will I be able to reduce the amount I pay for the remainder of the debt or does it reduce the length of time I am making repayments?

Hi gpr and welcome to the forum

Could you explain what you mean by £23,254 as I cannot reconcile those figures to your monthly payments of £496. What provision was there for dealing with your property within your IVA proposals? Did you agree to a fourth year revaluation and re-mortgage?
