Hi i currently have a iva with jarvis ( was apature ) and am paying £263 per month and have approx 2.5 years left to pay. Total left to pay is around £8100. A family memeber has offered to lend me £9000 to settle early. Is this a good offer and likely to be accepted or not?. Thanks
As Foggy says, that's a really decent offer and I would be surprised if you had any issues, but you never know how they'll vote on the day.
I see no reason why that wouldn't be accepted though.

Personally, I would start with a £6.5k offer. Creditors may barter you up but I can't see the point of overplaying your hand at this point.
If they accept, which I think they will as it is a 3rd party offer (see elsewhere on here for what will be needed) then you and your friend will be better off. If they don't, then you can increase a little, say, in £500 steps, until they do.
