Hi, not been on here a while since completing my IVA a year ago.
I'm still having issues cleaning up my report.
When I went into the iva in 2012, I had a loan secured on my house with firstplus (taken over by Elderbridge finance). Worst thing I ever did but that's another story. Obviously that loan had to remain as it was secured. A year or so into the iva my house was repossessed and the loan was half paid off with the equity in the house but some £18k remained. As this loan was joint with my then and still now ex husband, I became responsible for my half as it were and it was taken into my IVA in October 2013 after a variation meeting. So now my IVA is complete I should no longer be responsible for that debt but Elderbridge will not remove the default or my financial association with my ex husband off my credit report. They say it has to run for the 6 years so every month after my IVA they keep.putting a default report to call credit. So call credit won't remove it. Experian say I shouldn't have this association anymore. Do I have to wait even though my responsibilities for this debt were taken into my IVA albeit not at the very outset.
Any help will be appreciated
Hmmm ... the default date is supposed to record the date that the relationshiop between you and tyhe creditor formally broke down, which, in most cases is taken as the date the IVA started. However, being a secured loan this debt would have continued outside of the IVA and only became part of the arrangement when it became unsecured .... well after the start of the IVA.
The question here is, which date is the applicable date ?
