I am a guarantor for a Amigo loan of £5000. I am currently in a IVA of debts of 21k. The person who I guaranteed the Amigo loan for is struggling to make payments. The Amigo loan was not included in my IVA would I now be responsible to make the Amigo loan payments?
Would it be possible to include the Amigo loan in my current IVA at this stage?
The loan should have been included as a contingency payment, then, if the original debtor defaults, it would have been included in your IVA. Did you tell your IP about being a guarantor when your IVA started ?
If you become responsible now there is an outside chance it could be included, but it could also derail your IVA for a number of reasons.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
