As per the agreed terms around half of the overtime and bonus would be due to be paid to the IP. In these unprecidented times it is certainly worth having a chat with your IP. They could allow you to retain enough for the repairs and repay it by extending the IVA to cover the arrears. They could allow a payment break of regular payments and add those on the end of the term. Much will depend on the figures involved, of course, but do speak to them --- at worst your repairs will be covered by the half you get to keep.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
