so when your answering the mortgage questions they seem to ask now if you have had any adverse credit in the last 6 yrs, so what would be the correct answer? is it yes as i've been through an iva in the last 6 yrs or is it no as i haven't tried to apply for credit so in theory there is no bad record on my credit file or history. seems an odd way to phrase it and they haven't actually asked if i've been in an iva.
It is down to the wording of the question -- as well as the attitude of the lender to the reply.
Some ask "Have you entered an IVA in the last 6 years?" -- which would be no.
Some ask " Have you been in an IVA during the last 6 years?" -- which would be yes.
"Have you had adverse credit in the last 6 years?" would also be a yes.
Some lenders don't really care, some will never lend after an IVA. The trick is to be selective as to who you approach. I would suggest using a broker who is experienced with adverse credit in general and IVAs in particular.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
