Can you buy a house after an IVA?

It is possible to buy a house after an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA), but it may be more difficult to obtain a mortgage compared to someone who has not entered into an IVA. An IVA is a legally binding agreement that allows you to reach an agreement with your creditors to pay off your debts over an extended period of time. While an IVA can help you to get your finances back on track and avoid bankruptcy, it may have a negative impact on your credit rating, which can make it more difficult to obtain credit in the future.

If you are considering buying a house after an IVA, it is a good idea to speak with a financial professional or a mortgage broker for advice. They can review your specific situation and help you determine the best course of action. You may need to wait until your IVA has been completed before you are able to obtain a mortgage, and you may also need to provide additional documentation to demonstrate your financial stability and creditworthiness.

It is important to be aware that even if you are able to obtain a mortgage after an IVA, you may have to pay a higher interest rate due to the perceived increased risk to the lender. It is a good idea to shop around and compare mortgage offers from different lenders to find the best deal.
