well my hubby is starting (hopefully) an IVA very soon, hes just today sent the proposal back for 43p in the £. firstly any experience as to if you think this is a good offer ?
secondly, im trying to think how to phrase this without sounding awful so im just gonna say it!
dh grandma is in a nursing home and we have been told today things are taking a turn for the worse. putting it bluntly, when she dies the house will be sold and then hubby will get his inheritance.my question is this,
say for example hes a few months into the iva and he stands to inherit £50k, for example. I hear ppl discussing full settlement and i wonder if the total outstanding debt pre iva was £43 k, but by doing the iva £26k will be repaid, if he got £50kwould he offer or have to pay the full £43k back or does he offer a settlement on the £26k?
I am in same position and have been told to day that in addition to the balance to pay back the 100% owed to creditors I will also need to pay back £20000 in statutory interest as I have a windfall coming to me via inheritance !
Sounds awful but if you have yet to enter into IVA and you know that is likely to happen is there anyway you can see things through without an IVA ?? That way your hubbies record won't be tarnished with the IVA stamp for six years ??

Hi there welcome to the forum and good advice above in respect of maybe looking at another debt solution. You can take advice from 2 or 3 companies to ensure you're on the correct solution. Try www.iva.com for a list of companies to get all important case specific impartial advice x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.
Isn't your husband happy to see his potential inheritance used to repay his debts? Surely this will put you in a better financial position overall, and the money you were earmarking to pay into the IVA could be put into savings instead.
