If I didn't pay for three months in order for the IVA to be failed by the IP, what are the consequences and what would my creditors do? I certainly don't want to be made bankruupt. Would I be able to go back to paying the bills every month. I guess my creditors would charge me extra to do this? My biggest problem is that I need to. pay for certain things in cash. What would happen if, like last week, I had to call out an emergency electrician on a Sunday and I had to give him £150 in cash.
If you fail the IVA the creditors will add back any lost interest and will be free to pursue the repayment as they see fit ... bankruptcy, although a possibility, is not a certainty. It will be up to each creditor to decide how they are willing to proceed.
Emergencies happen to all of us in an IVA and, often, cause distress and discomfort, but are the nature of the beast. Sometimes we manage to save a small emergency fund before entering the arrangement, other times we just have to manage until we can get the money together -- maybe by a payment break ageeed with the IP.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
