Because that is the procedure. Before the IVA can be considered as completed the distributions have to be made to creditors and everything checked before final accounts can be prepared, following Insolvency Service operating procedures. It shouldn't be much longer.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

Iva closures shouldn't take that long but have been known to take up to 6 months.

If it were me i would be chasing weekly now for the certificate of completion especially as you have complied with all the terms regarding inheritance payments
