Re: will they take my caravan off me for hubbys iva even ...

An Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) is a proposal to the creditors, it is an offer to them, they cannot take things, This usually means offering a monthly payment for a period of time and then the IVA finishes and any debt remaining does not have to be paid back. Sometimes a person also offers assets as part of the IVA process, so that they are able to offer a reasonable proposal. This could be a car, caravan, boat or could be to remortgage a house. In the situation you have described your husband will not be able to offer the caravan to them as it is not his asset to offer and you cannot be forced to sell your things to pay for someone else’s debts. If your husband contacts a free debt adviser they will be able to prepare a financial statement and have a look at all of the options he can use to deal with his debts. They will be able to identify all of the good points and any negative points of each debt solution so that you can decide which is the least drastic and most effective to use.
