Simply write to each creditor telling them that a relative has offered to assist in offering a pro-rata sum in full and final settlement of the outstanding debt.

The letter template here could be adapted: https://www.iva.co.uk/letter5-offer-of- ... settlement

On a £40k debt pro-rata offers would be in the region of £4500 for the smaller debt and £13500 for the larger debt. On the face of it they would be getting more than they would if you entered an IVA and not incurring the associated costs.

I would think in those circumstances you should avoid an IVA altogether and approach the creditors and do a deal direct, saving on costs.
