I’ve just applied for Iva and I put my application through faith finance which then they refer me to forest king (which is really hard to find any review about them online) has anyone heard of them. I have £10600 dept which £5000 of it is with Zopa and £2700 with PayPal credit £850 overdraft with Lloyd’s and £1900 with Barclays credit card I also have £300 tax credit over payment.
I can pay £150 per month according to faith finance solution after looking at all I ingoing and outgoing of my account and checking my payslip and ...
What is the chance for me as I’m really stress about it.
I have forest king calling me today has anyone heard of them.

Never heard of Faith or Forest King. Faith are just introducers and you have no control over who does your IVA -- i.e over who will be controlling your life for the next 5 or 6 years. Personally I prefer to do some research and choose who has the power myself.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I agreewith Foggy.
These people will have huge insight, power and control over your financial life for next 5-6 years.
I would never put that trust into a company I hadnt chosen and one I couldnt find any information about.
I would put it on hold for now, read posts on here of who people have experience with and go through figures with someone reputable. Best of luck

I would cut out the middle man and go direct to your choice of IP.

I have never heard of Forest King but then I doubt they have heard of my firm either.

According to their website Stephen Quinnn is their IP and he is licensed by the ICAEW so it is him I would suggest you speak to.

Never heard of them either. Please speak to one of the smaller companies.

I spoke to them today, I found them very professional and impartial they have 93% approval and my IP is going to be Stephen Quinn. Fingers cross they said they dealt with my creditor and they were usually good.
I’m extremely nervous, I’m so glad I could find this forum and get expert advise. Thanks a lot for your replies.
