Hi, I'm currently 20 months into my iva, for the first 13 I paid 195, when my 2nd year calculation was done it went up to 221. I've just been made redundant and was wondering what sort of offer I'd need to make in order to finish the iva. My redundancy payment will only be 2000. I've do have a shared ownership mortgage.

Many thanks

It will depend on how much you still owe and if anyone can gift you money for a full and final. You are allowed to keep up to six months money whilst seeking future employment.

An offer would be based on 40 remaining payments at £221 (£8840) plus 12 payments in lieu of equity release, if you have more than £5k equity in your share (£2652), so about £11.5k. How much, if anything, you can reduce this figure by will depend on the circumstances and the original debt.
