Either option is reasonable and creditors are usually sympathetic. Try the full and final settlement offer and produce some evidence of the decrease in earnings.

With that sort of equity you are looking at an extra 12 months. So three years left at £250 is £9000 which the creditors are expecting. Based on this £4,000 might be a little light ( but, you never know). I would, first, attempt to get payments reduced. IP's normally have the discretion to reduce by up to 15% without going back to the creditors (any more would require a variation meeting).
