I am 3 years into an IVA. My partner had a property to sell and has excellent credit score. Is there any hope we will be able to get a mortgage together?

It is very unlikely that you will be able to join in a mortgage with your partner for another few years. If you could, your IVA would then impact on his credit rating and the interest rate would be very high. Added to this, you are not allowed to take on any more credit while in the IVA.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

As Foggy says you can't take further credit so you would have to settle your IVA. If you were to do so and have access to a large deposit (possibly 25% +) there may be Specialist Lenders that would consider lending to you.

Depending on your circumstances your partner may be able to take out the new mortgage just in his name and you can think about adding yourself at a later date.
Highly Commended at the British Mortgage Awards. For individual mortgage advice go to
