We have been in our IVA for nearly four years. Part of the agreement was that we released the equity in our house and made a final lump sum payment at the end of the 5 year period. Would our current lender be able to help us? We have a charge on the property at the moment due to the IVA so would this make it difficult to remortgage to release the equity?
You are highly unlikely to be able to remortgage, regardless of the charge on the property.
You may find that you need to extend your IVA for a further 12 months to cover this.
