At the end of the day it is your responsibility to ensure that the terms of the IVA are adhered to --- your IP is only the supervisor of an agreement between you and your creditors. Give them a prod to get the ball rolling and, in the meantime, brush up on the exact wording and meaning of the clause as written in your own agreement, so you can keep them on the straight and narrow.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

The onus is on you to deal with it, not your IP.

Don't ignore it as it won't go away.

I waited for contact regarding equity and it lead to my payments stopping briefly which sadly added a month to my finising date, wish I had contacted the company. A month is a long time when waiting for that completion date. :(
