Debt Relief Group?

Has anyone used the ‘Debt Relief Group’ for help with an IVA? My Adult son is in the process of going with them but he can be quite vulnerable and I’d really like to check them out first (but can’t find much out online about them). Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Beth

    There are lots of debt management companies out there that sell IVA’s, all charge for running one, some are worse than others, but basically all sell a similar product.
    The question you must ask, is if an IVA is suitable for your son, or not.
    Its a pretty easy decision to make, IVA’s were designed for homeowner’s with massive debts, when I say massive, although there are no limits either way, the solution is best suited to someone with assets to protect, and debts north of 50k.
    They can be suitable under other circumstances, but if that does not describe your son, then another option may be better for him.

    No, not heard of them. These IVA companies come and go.

    A quick search shows that they are a trading style of Ease Your Debts Limited, same as

    Why not get him to have a chat with National Debtline? They have no product to sell so can advise on the whole range of strategies. If you ask an IVA company what you should do, the answer is invariably 'take out an IVA'.
