I think by missing 3 payments your IVA would fail and therefore you could declare bankruptcy.

Are you considering bankruptcy? Are you struggling withing your IVA? Have you spoken to your IP? Sorry for a barrage of questions x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

You can ask your IP to fail your IVA for you wihout waiting the 3 months, check the original chairmans report from the Creditor meeting when the IVA was setup and see whether any provisions have been put in place to fund your bankruptcy from the pot

Best of luck

It will also depend on how long you have been in an IVA. The shorter the time, the less likely it is that you will have accrued enough money even if you do have that provision.

I don't think a lot of them do now.
