Can’t decide whether an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) is right for you? Take a look at our article about the application process for an IVA. It couldn’t be simpler.

How Begin The Application For an IVA

Signing up to a debt solution is a significant event in your life, so it is important to gather as much information as possible, so you can make an informed decision. 

Once you feel ready, fill in our form and a member of our team will contact you. Alternatively, call our team on 0800 698 0174.

How to Apply For an IVA

After you have spoken to a member of our team and decided that an IVA is the best option for you, your application will be passed over to an IVA Drafter. At this stage of the process, all of your personal and financial details will be gathered in order to create your IVA Proposal.

Your IVA Proposal is a formal document that is sent to your creditors. This gives your creditors a complete picture of your circumstances. 

What Information Will We Need For An IVA?

During the application process, there are several documents that we will request.

Which information you are asked for will largely depend on your personal circumstances and as such, the following list is to be used purely as a guide.

There will also be a discussion regarding your other living expenses, such as food bills and travel expenses. This allows your IVA Drafter to determine your affordability, ensuring you don’t commit to an IVA that isn’t appropriate for you.

We will ask you to provide:

  • Photo ID
  • Rent Agreement or Mortgage Statement
  • Latest 3 Months of wage slips
  • Latest 3 months of bank statements
  • Council Tax and Utility bills
  • HP agreement if appropriate
  • Recent statements from any other creditors you may have.

Drafting My IVA Application

Once all of the information has been gathered, your IVA Drafter will then ‘draft’ your IVA. This means that they will raise the legal documentation.

The Drafter will check through the information you have provided and will ensure that everything is in order to successfully proceed with your proposal, including making sure that all evidence of your cicumstances are available should your creditors request more details.

Creditors will occasionally question any spending that is above government parameters. This means that if your food bill is higher than average, your creditors may require justification for this.
