It depends upon who you are with --- Aperture use an "inventive" interpretation of the standard clauses. And whether you have the standard clauses.

In most cases the method used will be ....
Market Value £160,000 x 85% = 136,000
Les outstanding mortgage of £135,000 = £1000 which is under the trigger threshold, so no remortgage or extension

Aperture choose to do it this way ....
Market Value £160,000 less outstanding mortgage of £135,000 = £25,000, which triggers the clause and they will be looking for 85% of this, so, £21,250.
This sum will be limited by the ceilings placed by the IVA (repayment and term limits detailed in your proposal) and the availability of a remortgage / secured charge (if your peoposal includes secured lending as a source).
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

You may just have to extend for one year.

A slightly different thread but still relates to re-mortgaging.

Our situation is as follows:

I am currently at 5yrs and 5mths into my 6yr IVA.

I am in an IVA with Aperture (unfortunately). I am now coming towards the stage at which there is a need to release potential equity.

Property value £450k-£500k
Mortgage and secured loan £247k
Equity Release potentially available £200k (less than the mortgages due to be repaid therefore unavailable)

This looks simple but I am almost 66 and my partner is almost 77. Our ability to raise a mortgage will depend on my partner's final salary pension as I have a very variable income from self-employment, At 77, I cannot imagine that we could get a mortgage (nor do we want one) but I do understand that I will pay the extra year's IVA payments).

Its a complicated situation, but does anyone have a view if the Mortgage Broker that Aperture use will simply waive the obligation to remortage in the circumstances above as it seems so obvious that it won't work.

As an aside I hope to make a Full and Final offer from my sister of c.£6000 on the remaining balance of £8200. Does that sound about right?

Thanks for anyone's patience reading this far.

Aperture usually use Select to investigate the equity situation who are faithful to the spirit of the terms and conditions and will seek to find the best solution. One of the ceilings usually imposed on equity release is that "the remortgage term does not extend beyond the later of the consumer's State Retirement Age or the existing mortgage or other secured lending term". With due respect, looking at your respective ages, state retirement age isn't far away for one and passed for the other. So, any loan to release equity must not go beyond the term of your current lending, which cannot be that long, I imagine. It will also be limited by affordability. So an extension might well be the outcome.

I dont think you should over worry about it at this stage.
When we entered iva we didnt think we had equity, then we didnt think it could be released.
We went through this a year ago, with Select and they were fab. Very pleased with their input and dealings with us.

House valued £160k
Mortgage remaining £75k so equity and lots of it.

They used the calculation:

85% of market value then deduct outstanding mortgage value. If more than £5k had to look at releasing.

But there are so many clauses the new payment has to meet and strict criteria and affordability that we released a very very small percentage of that equity. And Select even had the consideration of our income in the furure and didnt include all the child benefit that i currently get due to ages of children meaning it will stop during course of remortgage so it wasnt counted as income.

I honestly was very surprised as had initially envisaged losing £50k or something crazy due to equity available!

I dont think you can really judge at this stage what that figure will look like until you go through it but Select were great and to be honest we needed a debt plan and a way to get things sorted so the iva outweighed any other things that cropped up.

Best of luck with everything
