I am looking for some advice, I have £30,000 of debt on credit cards and loans which I cannot pay. I own my house with only a small amount of equity. I have approached a debt charity and they say I can pay £340 into an IVA, but I can't afford this!
I work out I can pay at most, about £250 a month. Can anyone recommend any good companies for IVA's?

Not sure tbh but it seems a little perverse to charge those already in financial difficulty for the privilege of getting out of it. Worth making an informed comparison. Does the £210 include her costs for example or is that on top in which case it could easily become more than £240 likewise the £240? At £210 pcm you'd be paying £12600 over 5 years which is around 40% confused. Creditors presumably would prefer to see some of their money rather than none.

To my understanding any fees charged will be deducted from my monthly contirbutions, so there will be no extra monies to be paid on top of this. I suppose anybody proposing an IVA on your behalf is a business and not in the position to offer completely free and proffesional services. As you rightly said creditors will at least be getting something back in a formal debt solution.
