There should be no sign of the IVA anywhere by now -- if everything was done correctly. It should have disappeared from the Insolvency Register around 3 months after formal completion. You can check here :

Then, it should, along with any defaults, have left your credit reference files on the 6th anniversary in 2018. It would be an idea to check these with each of the three agencies by ordering a copy of your statutory report. This can be done through their websites:

Equifax -- ... eport.html
Experian -- ... eport.html
TransUnion (formerly Callcredit) --

You do not need to sign up for any subscription services.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

Private landlords are usually pretty good as they don't tend to credit check.
