The IVA does not absolve him from his responsibility for the mortgage however, as secured lending isn't included in the arrangement as such. In his IVA he will have undertaken to attempt to release some of his share of equity from the house, or, if that fails come the time, to pay an extra 12 months into the IVA. The IP will normally place a restriction on the deeds, which you, as joint owner, will have to agree to and sign. If you have not been asked to sign anything (Form RX1) either the house has been excluded and he has agreed to an extra 12 months ahead of time, the IP hasn't bothered with a restriction ( but might do shortly) or, your ex has signed on your behalf.
If the house has been assigned to you under matrimonial proceedings and, although still on the mortgage, he has no interest in it then it would not be included in the IVA anyway.
