If you do feel a failure - then join the rest of us - so many of us have stories to tell that can cause shame or a sense of failure. The best you can do is work out the best way forward and go for it. Firstly forget the 48 hours ultimatum - that is unfair. You need to understand the options open to ...

Good to chat ear;lier. As mentioned - you have done everything right in the first year - informing the IP if your overtime/bonus on a given month was more than 10% of your basic salary. Exactly the same principle for the second year.

Obviously your income level is important in calculating the amount you can afford to pay back on the debts through an IVA. You can probably start an IVA at one level of payment and reduce it if your income reduces. If you know what the new salary will be (and can provide evidence in due course) then...

Very sorry to hear about the rejection. If though you can make another offer - with a significantly greater amount of money - the there is no reason not to start again with a new proposal. £600/mty must be a lot more "commercially viable" than £200/mth! The amount of equity you have will b...

Certainly no reason why you shouldn't explore an IVA option. Well worth speaking to 1 or 2 companies to find out all your options - pros and cons of each. The fact that you have previously been made bankrupt does not prevent you proposing an IVA now.

Hi - Zopa do accept IVA's - but seem to demand a higher dividend than many other creditors. They require 50p in £ minimum - which means that the IVA needs to deliver 50p in the £ to all creditors - as all need to be treated equally.

My own opinion is that under the circumstances an IVA at £100/mth may well be the best option. It would protect the property and be an affordable payment. It would be a low dividend for the creditors, but I think could work. It will mean they have the peace of mind to know the property is protected ...

I would think if you have lived together in the property for some while it is highly likely that creditors would feel you have a beneficial interest in the property and it will come into play in the IVA. You will, I think, have to disclose all household income and outgoings inc your husbands pay. As...
