I am currently in an IVA and selling my house can you please tell me how much I have to pay back, will it be what I owe on the IVA or the original debt?

You will have to pay whatever amount takes you up to covering the full original debt, plus fees and possible statutory interest. Alternatively you could, rather than just sell now, offer to sell to provide a full and final offer based on the number of payments remaining. If this offer is rejected, as far as they are aware, the house will not be sold and they will have to wait for their money.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Have you taken advice before making this decision as most debtors enter into an IVA to keep their property and stay on the housing ladder?

If you sell it without a variation approved by creditors then you will have to pay over all of your share of equity unless and until the total debts, costs and usually statutory interest is paid in full.

Only then will you receive anything back, if there is a surplus.

I suggest you carefully consider proposing a variation on the basis of paying an amount equal to the remaining future contributions (if applicable) from the sale proceeds. Only then sell the property.

I would still recommend you get the variation in place first.

How much are your contributions?
How long do you have left in your IVA?
How much debt did you have originally?
How much is your estimated share of net equity?

Don't let on at the need to sell ..... you are willing to sell only if creditors accept the offer. :wink:
