Hi, we have completed our Iva in 2015 early as we started it in 2013. I have just checked Experian reports for both myself and husband and the IVA is not on it. Should I be worried. We are trying to get a mortgage at the minute. There are also two defaulted accounts showing on the report, these were included in the Iva but are separate on the report. Should these not have been removed?

Defaults should come off when they are 6 years old (from the date of registration of the default -- which should be on or around the date of the start of the IVA). Sometimes IVA's drop off early or never get entered --- they are recorded in their own section, "Court Information" (or something like that). Have a read here: ... dit-record
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014
