No it is not normal -- but, if the votes already cast make it a certainty they will sometimes pre-warn you. They should, in the meantime, earn some of their fees by trying to change minds, get non-voters to weigh in or seeking a counter offer ... maybe they say no to £4k, but would say yes to £5k.

With work stopping and no assets you could go bankrupt and they will, in the long run, get far less ---- your IP could well point that out to them.

How much are your actual debts ? Maybe, if you can get the figures right, a DRO would be worth looking at (similar to bankruptcy, but with no payments to make and all over in 12 months --- as well as costing £90 instead of £750 --- but you have to meet the criteria.

Hi thanks for advice, this is what I was emailed yesterday 10th with the variation meeting scheduled for today the 11th ??

Hello Linda,

Trust you are doing good.

I am writing to you to let you know that your creditors have rejected your meeting due to low offer.

Is it possible to you to increase the offer?

Many thanks

Regards
