The loan on the car is secured on the vehicle and, as such, would not be protected by an IVA --- in any event, under most financers Ts&Cs and IVA would trigger the insolvency clauses allowing repossession anyway.

I would suggest speaking to a couple of other firms to compare advice.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

It takes considerable time and patience to produce the figures for an IVA not to mention the setup of a new ‘noncreditor’ bank account.
I would be wary of a. omoany suggesting a big financial commitment withe such small time scales especially as they know how desperate you are forma solution-its a 5-6 year comitment that once you have is not easy to end.
I am sorry the car is at risk. Perhaps an IVA would be helpful ti get debt under control but rushing to get it setup in a few days is not ideal.
Best of luck. Let us know how it goes

I'd also be very surprised if they managed to put a stop on the repossession.
