Good morning

Will my Iva affect my joint account? We are not in debt with our joint account but could it any way affect it?

Hi,

You're partner will be affected credit wise as you are joint account holders. Which bank is it with? Some banks do not like an IVA and will close down accounts. If you have an OD facility get it removed and I would also look at opening a new account with a non creditor bank (Co-op come recommended).

As Kallis says, some banks react badly to an IVA, others are OK with it -- but you will not be allowed any overdraft facilities. You are associated with the joint account holder, financially, on the credit reference files, so the other party's credit rating might be slightly impacted by that association. The same applies for any joint accounts you might have.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
