Probably not very likely ( at least at high street rates) until the IVA clears from your credit records. I would suggest a chat with Ryan or Shaun, who are both experts in mortgages.

Their contact details can be found in their profiles here:

Shaun: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=22837
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Sorry to hear of your dads passing.

You will always owe the full original balance of debt plus ip fees and possible statutory interest.
Once this has been paid, certificates of completion received, and your credit file amended to show final payment, access to a mortgage would be a more likely option to trying whilst iva still in payment.

As foggy suggests chat to our experts Ryan and or Shaun to see what options you have.

Please note there business hours may be different during the pandemic and may currently not be operational.
