A review of the positive and negative aspects of entering into an IVA to help you make a decision about whether this debt solution is right for you.
A successful ClearDebt IVA holder, “Struggling 63”, whose IVA completed in July 2010, shares his story of debts and how an IVA changed his life and his attitude to money, in the hope of inspiring others who are in debt or just starting their IVA.
We are appalled at the behaviour of the biggest organisation representing creditors in IVAs – TIX. Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs) are supposed to be accepted by creditors when they are affordable, achievable and represents the debtors’ best efforts. They are supposed to be the best a person can do to repay as much as possible of the debts. It’s a five year commitment (usually) and its pretty fair for both sides – but it isn’t supposed to be set at a level that makes life horribly hard.
Last week one of our IVA clients gave ClearDebt some really positive feedback on her personal debt blog.
Celebrities and people in the public eye seemingly all turn to bankruptcy to deal with their debt problems, but bankruptcy isn’t the only answer. We take Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and use her as an example of how an IVA could help her manage her debts.
Bankruptcy has always been a touchy subject, and one many people avoid.
