I got myself slowly into debt - in fact i was in more debt than i initially thought - being a single working mum to two children and a home owner things escalated out if my control - I had to do something. I was terrified of initialising the conversation about my debt but once this was done I felt totally relieved. The friendly, understanding IVA people took me through the procedure step by step and were there 24/7 to answer questions and stop me from worrying. It took only a few weeks to… Read Full Review

If you are struggling with major debts, please do read everything you can about how to get out of this difficulty, I was advised that the IVA was the best route to go down, creditors would accept the reduced payments and that after 5 years everything would be settled. Not in my case I was paying fees to a firm that only passed on a percentage to the creditors, I was still having to pay out every month the firm arranging the IVA and each time I gained extra money I had to declare it so this… Read Full Review

I was anxious about going through with an Iva but upon speaking with Andy I felt like there was a solution to my problems. It is not an "easy" process and takes about 8 weeks but Vincent bond were always available and correspondence was easy to understand once you have gone through the process though all I can say is what a relief and Thankyou to Andy for his help… Read Full Review

After losing my job and with debts spiralling out of control, we decided to contact Vincent Bond for advice. This was not an easy decision at the time as we have never needed financial help before and we are proud people - but needs must as they say. Although sceptical we listened to what they had to say and now we're almost a year into our IVA and looking forward to being debt free. The initial advice was free from people that had personal experience - it was therefore relevant - and most… Read Full Review

I am currently seeking IVA advice 're bad debts. I contacted Andy Davie of Vincent Bond. Andy has been absolutely fantastic with his advice, discretion, and expert knowledge. He was able to answer all my questions in detail appearing to leave no stone un-turned. Andy has been so extremely helpful in guiding me and quashing my fears. I am now looking at beginning the IVA process asap and after continual reassurance feel Andy is the right person to guide me through this. Fingers crossed I see… Read Full Review

IVA is a good way to pay your debts, when it all seems to have got out of hand. I allows you to live on a reasonable income and pay a lump sum to a handler for your creditors. Although it can take a few years and you cannot get any credit (except car ins) while you are on it. I have recently had to take what they call a an IVA holiday because my car broke down and needed some very expensive repairs, but I was allowed to knock my payments down to a third for six months to pay for it… Read Full Review

Since starting work I have always managed to get into debt. I guess I am to generous ! I was made Bankrupt in 1995 and thought that I would never owe money to anyone again. However in 2011 I entered into an IVA and have since offered a full and final settlement that was accepted. After starting the IVA, I then came across IVA.co.uk and have always found the experts and poster extremely helpful and positive. I have made some great friends via the frugal friends meetings that are organised . I… Read Full Review

I found this site a few years ago when I was trying to find out details of a debt collector that was hounding me. It is an excellent site involving professional IP's, debt advisors and lay people from all walks of life and with various experiences of debt and solutions. It is daunting to admit you have problems and to post on a public forum but you're always assured of a warm welcome from everyone. Somebody will always know the answer to whatever question is asked and there is a very good… Read Full Review

I visited IVA.co.uk before deciding upon which financial option to take, and still continue to use it now. We needed help and advice, preferably from people who were going through the same difficulties we were. So having pretty much stumbled across IVA.co.uk we found it full of advice from people in our situation and from professionals. Any questions are answered promptly.
I feel one of the best things about it is that other users are non- judgmental; all are made to feel welcome, and it's… Read Full Review

I use the site primarily as a non participant. The reason I go there is for the support it gives me to see others in the same situation with such a positive outlook. I am nearing the end of my IVA and it has been so hard at times but the comments help me to see the goals and the light at the end of the tunnel. Also when I have had worries about an overtime issue etc. the site has helped me to see that my IVA company will always deal fairly and this has been a great help as both my wife and I… Read Full Review

It can be so confusing trying to find the best option for getting out of debt and I had so many questions that needed answering. The experts here were able to give important and impartial advice which answered all my questions and put my mind at rest.

Having found myself in financial difficulty recently, I have been trying to avoid the consequences and basically burying my head in the sand.
Eventually it got to the point where I could no longer handle the pressure on my own and I sought out advice. I wanted to find an alternative to going down the bankruptcy route and so I contacted a number of organisations including IVA.co.uk who I have found to be helpful and understanding, at a time while I was feeling emotionally and physically… Read Full Review

Similar to other reviewers here, I had been having difficulty getting good advise on how to deal with some debt problems I appear to have gotten myself into recently. There are many sites and companies offering advise, but tended to focus heavily on only 1 option or had their own agenda. Not wanting to go down the bankruptcy route, this site has been an invaluable source of help and advise to give me alternative options, especially due to the forum where you can ask others questions and gain… Read Full Review

I think this is a brilliant site it helped me make the best decision I ever made and get my life back on track, I owe this site a lot!
About 3/4 years ago I found this site when I was getting more and more depressed with my debt situation I didn't know want to do and the advice and support I got off of here was brilliant. There are people on here who are in the same situation and who have also been in the situation and come out the other side, plus the experts on here always help with their… Read Full Review

I entered into an IVA before discovering this forum, but wish it was the other way around. The advice I found there has been invaluable and the support second to none.
Had I discovered the forum earlier I would, no doubt, have used one of the resident experts there for my IVA, having found them to be incredibly supportive and ever eager to help.
Best of all it has given me the opportunity to discuss the IVA with others who have been through the same situation, to discover I wasn't alone and to… Read Full Review
