I'm in the process of moving but need to pass checks in order to rent. I have 1 & half years left of my IVA, no payments missed etc.

I've been declined to rent due to CCJ which are being paid of the IVA.,

I'm really stuck on what to do as I can afford to move etc with my salary but been hit with this wall. Any advice would be really helpful.

Do you have anyone who could act as guarantor? Some private rentals don't credit check.

Try private landlords who do not usually credit check. Other than that, as Kallis says, try a guarantor or offering rent in advance or a higher deposit.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
