Im in an Iva.
Last year I lost my job and was advised by Harrington Brooks to take a six month break.
I got my Job back. And then had a review in December 2016.
I made an agreement with my I.P.
(As we have agreed that your payments are to increase to £200 - £85.50 normal payment & £114.50 to Additional income till the end of your iva totalling £2175.50 then you will make a one of payment in june 2018 of £1093.48 and this will clear off the Additional income without having to go to the creditors and asking them for a further extension of your arrangement)
This month October 2017 I had a call from Harrington Brooks team member said they have my new adress as I have moved. And would I Like to make an increase in payments I said no as i have a review in December 2017. And said no more.
As I have an agreement and I have also taken a 2k pay drop a year in pay can they still increase my payments till June 2018 or dose the agreement still cover me. And I pay no more than £200. This is a joint Iva I have with Harrington Brooks and my partner also has taken a 2k pay cut.
Im really starting to stress out. I have contacted Harrington Brooks via email and a practioner and he has just passed me on to the shop floor team/supervisor still waiting for a call from them a week later.
Advice will be appreciated

If so they are over egging this particular pudding. Normally a payment break is simply tagged on at the end. Or do you have other arrears in the form of undeclared, therefore unpaid, overtime or extra income ?
I have been in an Iva for now six years due to losing my job. So had taken a six month break. Advused by Harrington Brooks. The Iva is now due to Finnish in June 2018.
I made an agreement with my I.P at Harrington Brooks. The agreement is.

I have in the past month moved to a new adress and taken a 2k a year pay drop. But when asked to call Harrington Brooks they said that they have changed my adress and would I make an increase in payments.
I said no as I have a review in December 2017.
My concern is the agreement is £200 to end the Iva in june 2018. Can Harrington Brooks still increase payments. Im starting to stress out. Ive emailed Harrington Brooks a few times and I keep getting we will be in touch or contact the higher I.P and get passed on..
Any help advice will be really appreciated
Can you email Harrington Brooks and set the read receipt option so you know when it is read ? If not write to them and send it registered / recorded delivery so you know its been received.
Up for a review in December. Had big pay drop in last year. 2k each my partner too.
Can these people at Harrington Brooks still demand more money. Even though I have a settlement agreement. For June 2018. That hasn't had to go to the creditors. Or will they reduce myour monthly payments up till June 2018. Ive sent a dosen emails lasto week still no onews called me and I.P has just passed me on to a office pen pusher
Who still hasn't contacted me.
