If your IVA has completed you do not owe any more as long as you have your completion letter. Your credit rating will be shot for six years and there is nothing you can do about that. Your creditors will have been paid off so you won't be able to cancel and start again.

Unfortunately you can't reverse the impact that entering into the IVA will have now where a Mortgage application is concerned - the defaults will show for 6 years and most Lenders would ask if you have been in an IVA as part of a Mortgage Application.

Your IVA has completed and you no longer owe the creditors anything .. there is nothing to withdraw. Even if you could it will still be on your credit record.

Even if your creditor had accepted reduced payments you would be faced with the same problems. The only difference is anything that you would have owed is now written off.

The fee seems reasonable too.

You might find this quick video I made about cleaning up your credit record useful:


Noddle and Clearscore are also free credit agencies to consider using:
