I started an iva in 2006 with a company called debt matters. They then transfered it to Grant Thornton. This was the worst 7 years of my life. Finally after paying back almost every penny i owed and they claimed my ppi back and I got zero from these, I finished my iva March 2014. I got my cert. And have since had a good credit rating and got manageable loans etc. Now I have received a letter from a solicitor about a debt I owed to alliance and leicester. They have put a charging order on my property. This debt was included in my IVA. I have proof and I have sent it to them but they say I still have to pay?!?!?! Any advice would be grateful. Karl
Thanks for reply. They have probably ruined my credit score and if I sell my property they get £3000! I cant contact Grant Thorntons as they cant locate the person who dealt with me. Is Grant Thornton still at waters edge in belfast? There numbers dont exist. What a sham. I would strongly advice any NEVER to take an IVA out!
I would use a debt management charity. I paid back almost every penny. Also I got a ccj against me whilst in the IVA and I paid it. Later realizing it was included in the IVA. After 5 years of paying. They made me pay another year because I had a small amount of equity in my home. The creditors get little back and the rest makes someone very rich!

Was the debt listed on your closure report? Did they receive dividends?
When was the charging order applied - was it before your IVA started or after? If it was before, the debt wouldn't have been bound by the IVA. If it was after, you might be able to get Aperture to fight back for you. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much info as you can remember, and hopefully they'll be able to do something for you.
