    IVA from deceased sister

    IVA from deceased sister 15th Mar 17 at 3:29 PM
    Please help!!
    My sister suddenly passed away in her sleep aged 40, she had an IVA running and was about 3 years into it paying £250pm.
    I have been in regular contact with the company DFD and now have a contact there who has been very open and helpful.
    She has advised that only 0.18p in the £ is paid to the creditors and when asked where the other 0.82p goes she has replied the below -


    The remaining 82p in the £ remains due to the creditors unless the IVA concludes successfully, at which time the remaining balances would be written off.


    I am confused, why isn't the full £250 paid to the creditors each month....is this not daylight robbery?

    I'll leave others who are expert in the IVA field to answer the question but just wanted to say sorry for your loss.

    Sorry for your loss.

    The full £250 per month was being paid to the creditors.

    What happens in an IVA is that the creditors agree to settle for less than is actuality owed, in this case they have agreed to accept 18p for every £1 that your sister owed. So say she owed £20,000, they have agreed to settle for £3,600 provided the IVA is paid for the full 5 years as agreed. The rest (the other 82p per £1) is then written off. Does this make sense?
