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.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

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.

Watch this:

Check the terms in your IVA.

Then get the property valued to establish whether the equity level is sufficient for the clause to kick in.
