Hi Rasika and welcome to the Forum.
You can do an IVA whether you are a homeowner or not. However it would depend on the amount of equity you have as to whether or not creditors would be better off if you just remortgaged or sold. If you have a lot of equity your DMP may be the best option but if you have little or no equity an IVA may be a more suitable option.

If you are unsure you can alwaystake a second opinion or let us know on the Forum how much equity you have.

How much equity do you have in your property Rasika - based on a valuation at forced sale basis rather than open market?
