Hi Debbie and welcome to the forum. I would talk directly with your IP. Your IP will need to knwo about your husband's redundancy too. Are you in an interlocking IVA with your husband or is the IVA only yours? x

I would talk with your IP about the redundancy and your wish to downsize property. Can you transfer your mortgage? Do you have the 4th year equity clause written into your IVA? x

I would definitely talk directly to your IP debbie, are you able to do this or do you talk to a Supervisor first?

Your Insolvency Practitioner Debbie. I would wait around for a professional opinion but your IP, I'm sure his/her name will be somewhere within your proposal can be contacted directly via this link. Which company are you with?

Maybe dropping him an email explaining about the redundancy and what you would like to do in respect of downsizing the house would be a starting point and find out his views on this.

You can find your IP via the link that Lesley posted - try to contact your IP drect.

You will need permission to sell your property as your IP will have placed a restriction on the sale.

You would, as far as I am aware, be allowed to retain expenses from any equity for another property, but anything left would need to be paid across to your IVA.
