I can’t believe it!!

5 very long years but I made my final payment on 26th May and to my astoundment, my completion certificate turned up on the 18th June!!!!
I couldn’t believe it was so quick and I can’t believe it is finally all over. So relieved.

In the pack I received. There was a recommendation to copy my documents and send them on to Equifax, Experian and Callcredit. I’ve got my copies ready to send but how necessary is this? I have no issue sending these documents on but felt that all my files would get updated automatically anyway

Congratulations. To be honest nothing will happen to improve or alter your credit score or records until after the 6 year point, you have a full year left. Just savour the great feeling of getting that CC, have a glass or 5 and relax. Great news.

Great news and although I agree with Merlin that nothing will happen until the 6th anniversary I personally would send it off to the three agencies they can be annotating it us now concluded and any incorrectly defaults can be changed to the START of the iva so that when the 6th anniversary comes it all simply just drops off.

Getting the debtor to do this seems to be the new thing with several insolvency firms, although technically it shouldn't be needed as the "system" should take care of it. However, it is advisable, as Luluj says, to check the basics -- are the default dates all correct (indeed, are all the accounts actually defaulted?). But, as Merlin said -- you have time to get this sorted, there is no mad panic.

Have a read here, as I said, it should work pretty much on auto pilot. I hardly did anything but heck records, but things change: https://www.iva.co.uk/what-does-an-iva- ... dit-record
