Just received two debt transfer letters from 2 of my 3 debts that I have within an IVA, to Max Recovery Ltd, with only 3 months left into my 5 year IVA + 1 year extension. Both are the biggest of my debts held within my IVA, the 3rd being substantially lower and already itself sold off like some 3 years ago...

My question is....why? what would they (Natwest & but mostly...Max Recovery) get from selling / buying it so close to the finish line after nearly 6 long years?

I can't help but feel a little nervous with only 3 months to go, like I'm waiting for something else to go drastically wrong... :?

Debts are routinely sold off -- when and to whom depends on when the "lot" they are in is offered and bought. The firms that buy these don't know what the individual debts are, or that some are in debt solutions, but they pay pennies for them and take the chance ... if one or two debts in the bundle pay off then they have made their money. For the sellers, they wipe toxic debt from their books and don't have to spend money collecting dribs and drabs.

Nothing to worry about - mine were all sold on. Never had a problem.

Out of interest, if well into your via do you still have to notify iPhone of these debt transfers?

I presume you mean IP :) ? Your IP will be aware of the change of ownership of the debts.

No the creditor should contact the IP to tel them the debt has been sold and details need to change.

The creditors involved should contact the IP direct. But, to be sure, I would send a copy of any letters to the IP as well.
