Am sure when foggy arises this morning onto the forum he will be able to explain in much more detail on this.
Many of the emails state I can pay much less than the original figure and it seems that cancelling my iva and dealing with these are the easier option to going debt free ?
Allowing the IVA to fail and dealing with creditors direct is not usually a good option. They will add back "lost " interest and the debt will grow significantly ! They will also be at liberty to enforce collection again and even pursue bankruptcy, should the need arise. Having agreed a debt solution they are not always happy to have it thrown away!
Which company are you with and how long have you been in the IVA ?

Ah yes. Aperture are a little inventive sometimes with their interpretations of the terms and conditions and are a dismal failure with communication and timeliness .... but they do improve between mass case acquisitions!
Bearing in mind that offers do not always translate into actions the reduced payments sound interesting. However, you are not supposed to be negotiating with creditors without going through your IP. I would also warn that the compensation payment might already be an asset of the IVA and payable to the creditors, at least in part, if there has already been an offer made to you. Take as much advice as you can and tread carefully.
Creditors will be able to charge interest on the debts and its not guaranteed they will all allow you to settle the debts for a reduced sum.
Any assets you own, such as proper, will be at risk in Bankruptcy and you may have to make contributions form your income for 3 years..

The iva isn't doing its job if I'm still getting harrassed and I'm entitled to end it if I'm unhappy about it
Yes, of course you are entitled to end it if you wish ... it is YOUR IVA after all. We just have to mention that there is a possible downside. Are you reporting this creditor contact to your IP ? ---They should be dealing with it.
Is your total debt six thousand pounds .. or is that a typo ? If so an IVA for 6k is a big hammer to crack a small nut !
And the company used was dis honest and changed things to suit me apparently
That's why I am thinking about ending it and dealing with it myself , I want to pay it off I just feel it will be so much easier if I spoke to my solicitor and paid up directly
Then work out what the creditors debts, plus interest form the date of each debt to date, less any payment form the Supervisor and whether you have enough funds to then pay everything off in full.
I suspect the outcome will be the same if you pay the funds into the IVA - either way the IVA costs have to be paid and interest might already be frozen in your IVA.
You could propose creditors to waive their right to interest.
Ultimately it seems that you may have enough to clear everything through the IVA, which means it may end early due to payment in full.
Any surplus would then be repaid to you.
