Hi, new here and been in an IVA around 8 months. I have 2 children and finally passed my driving test so needed a car. It had to be automatic as I have a medical condition, I recieved 5k inheritance from my grandmother who passed in September (one month after starting the IVA). I asked to keep 3,800 to buy a certain car and sent them the details. This was in March.
They arranged a meeting of creditors for over a month's time.. in the meantime the car was sold, we found another for the same price. Sent to creditfix again, same thing happened and it was sold as the meeting took so long. So my mum bought a car with the plan for me to then buy it from her if its approved. (They've said high chance it will be as I've also had to ask to extend my term by 12 months for them to accept). I asked previously if I can buy privately or from friends and family and creditfix said yes a song as can provide an invoice and see the transaction from my account to theirs if approved.
I have been driving it around, she has insured it and her online bank wouldn't work so we set the tax up monthly from my account. Now I'm panicking incase once its accepted, they'll see the tax with the registration like I already own it? Will this be an issue do you think? Is this fraud?
If you have a medical condition, have you thought about a motability car?

They've postponed my creditors meeting, then asked for my confirmation to extend for 12 months, I have agreed and recieved an email this morning to say it's all been accepted for me to allow to keep the funds for a car. So I've called them to ask how I transfer the difference to them and they've now said they haven't emailed me and are still awaiting an outcome? They've messed me around so much, telling me all different information. Nobody seems to know what the other are doing. I've never known a company like it!!
Communication and the connection between backside and elbow has never been CFs strongpoint and customers will often get different versions of a story to cover up the real reason --- often revolving around the fees that CF charge.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
