Hi there..I'm hoping one of the experts can help. I'm in an IVA that reaches the 5th anniversary in Feb 2018. At that time the payments I would have made will be around £5k short of the total amount owed to creditors. Paying roughly £1250 per month since day one, does that mean I will pay only for four months into the 6th year or will I have to continue paying for the full 12 months (I do have equity in my property). Many thanks

Hi. During an IVA you always owe the full origianl debt, plus fees and possible statutory interest -- the IVA will only end early when and if that total is met.

Sometimes the creditors can be petitioned and agree to forgive the statutory interest -- check your proposal -- on occasion it is already excluded in the terms.

If you have 'standard' terms in your IVA then if your equitable interest in the property is worth over £5k then the clause will kick in an the 12 moth extension will likely apply.

The key here is to getting a current valuation and see if you can wriggle your share to under £5k...
