I am 16 months into a 5 year IVA. I pay £160 monthly and I was wondering if I offered £6,000 in F&F settlement of my IVA - what are the chances of this being accepted by the creditors? If this amount is not acceptable, how much should I offer? Also, will this affect my IVA if my offer is not accepted or will it continue with me making monthly payments?
Assuming no extension for equity release applies, your creditors are looking at getting just a smidge over £7k more from you, so I would say that an offer i.r.o. £6k has every chance of being looked at seriously.
Generally, as long as a F&F offer isn't being made on the basis of unaffordability, the IVA will continue as originally agreed should the offer be rejected.
The funds for the offer should be third party funds and the IP will want evidence of the source.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
