Can I rent a property off my parents while in an IVA? My parents have recently purchased a property and they have asked if I would like to rent it, it would be the same amount as I’m currently paying.

As long as it is a market rent and you have a formal tenancy agreement there should be no issue.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

No reason why you can't if its a formal agreement and cost is no more ..makes sense as you won't need references and a friendly landlord is always good to have onside when things need replacing.
Will they take on full responsibility for the maintenance etc or are they expecting you to do that ?
