I am currently in an IVA with a co called Simple Debt Solutions. I have been making the agreed regular monthly payments. I recently sold my property and they have stated that the proceeds of sale must go directly to them to hold in account until a creditors meeting or I will be breaching my agreement. I notfied them of the sale in July and due to their incompetence they have not yet set up a creditors meeting, I am not satisfied with the service being given...is there a way for mediation or to change to another company. I offered a lump sum which they refused to acknowledge

That's a shame sayenna.

Unfortunately "transferring" an IVA to a new IP is impossible without their consent and a lot of work. You would instead have to allow your IVA to fail and then propose new terms with a different company, and the fees of the previous IVA would still be payable.

It's almost certainly a better idea to stick with Simple Debt Solutions and just escalate your concerns until you speak directly to a manager or your IP.

If you can't get a result that way, then you can complain directly to your IP's regulatory body.

Good luck for the meeting!
Take care,

It's note the first time we have seen complaints about this particular firm on the forum - and with a lump sum available you would think that they would want to get your case progressed asap.

I suggest that you try and speak directly to the IP acting for you to express your concerns, and ask for a timescale in which he/she can expect to put the variation forward. IPs are busy people these days, but this is no excuse for poor client service.
