An IVA and bankruptcy are different things. If it is the old IVA causing problems he will need to clean up his credit files, yes. Also you can check his name on the Insolvency Register to make sure the old IVA was, in fact , completed.
As Foggy says it should be one or the other so worth maybe finding out a bit more. If there was a restriction against the property in question it may need to be removed before the re-mortgage can go through.
