Firstly me and my wife have been in a iva since 2014 , I was self employed at the time and my business was struggling, we got ourselves into a financial mess and turned for help through a iva and where accepted , our monthly payments into the iva are low , started off at £55 p/m but has now increased slightly as I'm now employed but only work 3 days a week , my question is on the debtors proposals form it says
1.2 Payments -60 monthly payments over 72 months
1.3 I propose to make 12 extra payments at the end of my arrangements in lieu of the equity in my property .Due to my age and surplus it is unlikely that I will be able to release any equity from my property by way of remortgage
Speaking with my advisor yesterday she made out that my iva is for 7 years in total , but I spoke to another advisor last year and she said I'd be looking at the equity clause this coming Christmas with a view to adding on another 12 months to my iva which should end in 2020 ,I'm a bit confused now as to what length my iva is for , can anybody help please
Thank you in advance
They cannot have a second bite at equity if this was already covered in the agreement. I would imagine that your second advisor was spouting without having actually read your proposal (as they often do) which does differ from the norm in that the equity position has already been agreed at the outset. What does the Chairman's Report say on the matter ( it could over-ride the proposal ) ?

After you make the required number of payments that is it .. no payments during the admin / closure period (unless you win the lottery, get a PPI refund or inherit).

The Chairman's Report would contain any variations from the proposed terms. If they make no reference to any particular aspect then the proposal stands as drawn. In "standard" arrangements equity is investigated 6 months before the end of the base period, in this case month 54, indicating they expect the normal term to conclude at month 60 and there to be a possibility of the 12 month extension, taking it to 72 months.
