We owe £9,600 and are preparing a settlement figure. What are our chances if we offer £7,000

Please provide a few more details

- current monthly payment?
- how months remaining?
- do you own your own home?

From this we can then provide you with some idea as to whether your suggested amount would be feasible

A rough idea of your estimated dividend or original debt would also help to gauge how much of a hit creditors are already taking.

We have 56k worth of debt.

We are currently in our second year - paid 14 months.

We pay £163 a month. We are home owners. only been in out house for 2 months so not lots of equity.

We have been given a final figure of 9600.

We would really like to get out of our IVA.

Please help with what would be a figure that would be accepted.

Many Thanks

Does your figure include a possible 12 month extension in lieu of any equity at the end? Where would the funds be coming from?

Yes, it includes the possible year extension.

OK -- for that sort of debt your creditors are already taking quite a hit, so that reduces your 'wiggle room' a bit and I would think that an offer close to the £9.5k -- maybe £8,500 or £9,000

Alternatively --- if you can prove that there is likely to be less than £5k equity, so the release clause would definitely not be triggered, you could reduce this by the 12 extra payments. So your proposed £7k looks more like it.

Personally I would state that equity release will be unlikely, but, in the spirit of compromise you are willing to include the 12 months in lieu in the basis of your offer ( suggesting that creditors might get more by accepting the offer now ). This, of course, assumes that you would be willing to offer something like this amount.
