You need to speak to an IVA company for proper advice. You won't have to sell your main home but may have to try and release some equity towards the end. Not sure about your second home.. Your car will depend on the company you are with . You will be allowed enough to cover your payments and your allowances. It is also recommended that you change your bank account and do not have an overdraft.

The house your daughter lives in basically pays for itself, so should be no issue from that point of view, but it, along with the house you live in, will need to be looked at for equity release towards the end of the IVA. However this will need to be discussed, in detail, with a provider at the ouitset, to avoid any surprises later on.

From the IVA perspective, the PCP should also be OK, as long as it is a reasonable vehicle for your needs and you should be allowed to continue with the payments. However, you would need to check with the finance company as to how they would react to the IVA themselves. You will also need to think about the end payment. Many are unable to finance a balloon payment, and, most times ( not all) the PCP company will not re-finance another vehicle.

As for money in your account -- anything over a few hundred will be expected to be paid to creditors. After that you will have little opportunity to accumulate any great sum, so it would not come into question.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
