Because I have equity in my property the IVA company is demanding they extend the term by a further 12 months this was never explained to be by the salesman at the time although I did sign the agreement neither is it highlighted in the contract is there anything I can do
This is common practice and will be referred to in your proposal and in the terms and conditions under "Equity Release". This is the least onerous alternative that could be applied ... the others being a re-mortgage to release cash equity to your creditors or a secured loan for the same purpose.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I echo Foggy's words. I would add the fact you referred to the person as a 'salesman' does I think hit the nail on the head as to why people aren't getting told all the facts. we hear it quite a lot unfortunately.
