Hi, I’m a self employed carpenter, I originally put in for a 5 yr Iva , however this was extended on application to 6 yrs . I now have 3 payments to go until my 6 years are completed, however I’ve received a request to re- mortgage as I have more than £5k equity in my property( there was more than 5k when I took Iva out)and was unaware of this. They are now saying that I may have to complete a 7th year.i have never missed a payment and I’m not in arrears.... would a early settlement payment be accepted?ie sprout loans. Regards Iva confused.

The obligation to release equity or extend a further year is in your proposal and is standard for home owners, regardless of the initially agreed term. But, yes, you can offer up a lump sum instead and some here have used Sprout. This will still, however, depend on your ability (or inability) to remortgage, as that is the agreed plan: attempt to remortgage and extend if that fails.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
