Just wondering once it reaches stage of signing proposal, what sort of payments should be made to creditors? Should they be weighted in respect of who i owe most to?
Also curious as to whther you get bombarded by creditors straight after proposal received, even if the minimum payments arent due to few weeks afterwards.
Thanks in advance guys

Ah, yes .. apologies ....
Most of us made no payments at all, although some made token payments of, say a tenner to each creditor. It makes little difference to the phone calls / letters you might get and no difference to the outcome. Making no payments will allow you to put aside a small contingency fund (which you WILL need at some stage).
When you get phone calls just inform them you are entering an IVA and give the IP details -- many creditors will put the account on hold, some will still ring back to be told the same again. A few will spout nonsense about having tio make a payment (they are on commission from monies collected! ). Many of these calls are from call centres who don't even seem to know what an IVA is ! So, no discussion ... "name, rank & serial number" only.
Johng79 wrote:That actually creates another question. Roughly how long after creditor meeting IF approved, until first iva payment is required?
Some IP's like the first payment in hand at the creditors meeting, so to start the clock ticking down right away, but you generally have up to 28 days to make the payment.

Suppose it will probably take a week or 2 for me to agree proposal anyway nevermind creditor meetings especially with bank hols in may.
Once you return the signed proposal you will have a couple of weeks until the meeting.
