What happens to your house if you get an IVA?

If you rent your home, nothing will happen as long as you keep paying your rent.

If you own your home, you will almost certainly be asked to get a valuation on your house in the last year of your IVA. If remortgaging the house would raise more than £5,000, you will be asked to remortgage it and any money raised will be put towards paying back your debts. You will not have to sell your home. If remortgaging would extend the mortgage beyond its existing term, or put you beyond the state retirement age when it ends, you will not be expected to remortgage the property.

If you can’t remortgage your house for any reason (refusal by the bank, or complications with a jointly owned property, for example), you will have to pay your usual monthly payments under the terms of the IVA for an additional year.

It is possible but unlikely that you will be able to keep your home out of the IVA and thus avoid remortgaging it. If your insolvency practitioner feels that you will be able to pay back enough of your debts without including your house in your IVA, they may propose that it be excluded from the IVA when negotiating with your creditors, but this rarely happens.
