I'm wondering if an IVA is suitable for me. I have a house which I have a mortgage on. Will my house be considered as a way of paying my debt when entering into an IVA? My current debt stands at around 32-33k with 4 creditors and I could make payments of 1k a month at a stretch. I could afford to pay them back if I didn't have to pay interest on the cards. I've never missed a payment, default or a had a CCJ against me.

Your house will be protected although you may be asked to try and remortgage or take out a secured loan towards the end if you have any equity.

Have a chat with a few firms and take advice from them. Any queries you can come back on here and ask.

Hi an IVA does sound reasonable with those payments and you could probably keep the house. I'd be happy to chat to you about your options.

An IVA is primarily used to protect assets (even if you have to make extra payments in lieu) --- however a large amount of equity could tempt some creditors to refuse (HMRC for instance) if they have a controlling vote.

As Lisa suggests, a full and frank chat with an IP is in order to establish the full picture.
