Getting an IVA approved in Peterborough


With rising debts the number of insolvency cases too is on the rise especially in the cathedral city of Peterborough. People are frantically searching for proper debt solutions that would help them be dug out of the trench called ‘Debt’ without being hurt too much. As they are all aware of the negative consequences of Bankruptcy that would completely spoil their image in the society, people are trying to find out other alternatives. And what better option would be there other than the IVA.

An IVA(Individual Voluntary Arrangement) in Peterborough is one of the best services that comes out of the UK Government’s basket of schemes. Keeping the common people i.e. the debtor’s well-being into consideration, the IVA has been designed with utmost care. At the same time it doesn’t do injustice to the creditors too. It is a completely balance scheme in which both the debtor and the creditor are benefited.
Normally when a person is deep into debt and is unable to clear them off he finds no other way but to declare insolvency. While Bankruptcy is to be taken as the last resort when everything fails, the immediate option would be to go for an IVA in Peterborough.

Why so?
Because IVA surpasses Bankruptcy in many ways:
When it is found that it is an unsecured loan of a lesser amount and opting for a Bankruptcy would be unviable.
In IVA you can retain your assets, especially your home.
You need not be afraid that your family, friends and social acquaintances would not about your insolvency, because in an IVA everything is confidential and are not declared in public.
You can repay the agreed portion of the debt in small fixed amounts every month, which would not put on much burden on you.
The credit rating will be affected for a lesser period i.e. maximum 6 years while in case of bankruptcy it may last up to 10 years.
When you initiate an IVA you should keep in mind certain things so that it gets approved without much of a difficulty
The minimum repayment amount should be higher than the amount that would have been recovered from a Bankruptcy. Otherwise, creditors would to go for an Bankruptcy and not support an IVA.
Ensure that you try to make the maximum repayments. If you put up the minimum amount and the creditors come to know that you can afford even more than that they would oppose the IVA.
If you have other assets besides a home, you should consider liquidating at least some of it and contributing toward the repayment.

Special attention has to be given to those creditors who are having some intentional grudges on you. First take them into confidence, otherwise they may vote against the IVA.

What is the process of getting an IVA approved in Peterborough?
Contact a Licensed IP (Insolvency Practitioner) locally in Peterborough who would take all your financial details and derive a plan of action on how much is your total debt, how much surplus money you will be able to take out every month and based on this the maximum amount repayable is calculated over a period of time. These are then put in a proposal form and once you read and agree to it, you give your approval by way of signing it.

The IP then puts it before the court for its approval. In the meantime he contacts the creditors, makes them aware of the debtor’s financial situation, his voluntary intention to repay the maximum possible and about the IVA initiation.
The court then analyses the details and if it is satisfied, approves it. The IP then sends the copy of this approved proposal to the creditors and gives them time of up to 3 weeks to analyze and decide upon. Then on a given date the creditors are brought together to discuss and finalize on the IVA. This is the crucial moment. Many creditors may not agree to certain points, may be apprehensive about certain things, ask for clarifications, additions, modifications etc. And for this reason, the debtor too has to be present there to provide the clarification instantly and consent or reject the additions & modifications. Once viable changes are made and the same is agreed upon a voting takes place. When 75% of the creditors vote in favor of it, the IVA is considered to be approved. The debtor pays his first installment of the repayment.
There on this follows for the said period as agreed in the IVA. In between, an annual review is made of the debtor’s income and current status and an annual report is prepared and submitted to the court, copies of which are provided to the creditors and the debtor too.

Once the agreed amount is repaid, the Insolvency Practitioner informs the same to the court along with documentary proof and the Court provides a ’Certificate of Completion’ in favor of the debtor. The debtor is now free of all the debts and is also free to start a new refreshing debtless life.
