We are entering an IVA and have a car each, valued at £5,000 each. Our IVA paperwork stated that we do not wish to include these in our IVA as we need them to commute to work.
Can our creditors make us sell them?

Many thanks for any answers.

Hi tjipj and welcome to the forum, I personally think it's important to have a reliable car for the duration of the IVA as there may be less maintenance costs etc.,

I'm not sure of an IP's view but will keep this bumped up for a better positioned person to comment on. x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

I think you may be ok. We had a car valued at £8k and were allowed to keep it.

The answer to your question is yes - but you also have to agree to the sale for that to be made binding. I don't feel that your cars are of excessive value, and you should be fine on the day.
