I may be getting a critical illness payout soon. If I do, this would be just over £82000, enough to clear my mortgage.
My IVA started in May 2018 and my total debt was around £32000. My payments have remained at £238 per month.
Does anyone have any idea of the probable amount I'd need to pay back? I have read conflicting information in regards to clearing the total debt with some saying the whole original amount including the IP fees and others saying this including interest at 8% PA.
I am by no means savvy at all! I have done several calculations with one figure in excess of £50000 :0
needless to say, I am keen to pay but I really would like to clear off a good chunk of mortgage if I get said payment.
Statutory interest is generally included in full settlements, so you would be looking at paying back the full original debt, IP's fees (commonly around £1750 Nominees fees and 15% of payments for Supervisors fees ( although CF do charge more in many cases). The statutory interest, if included, is simple interest at 8% based on the daily reducing balance of debt remaining --- some arrangements do exclude this liability, but more often not.
CF appear to be one of the few firms willing to actually give you a settlement figure, so you could have a chat with them, but ensure you get the reply in writing -- they are also prone to changing their tune.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
