I was moving from being employed to self employed and had debts of almost£54k. <br/> I was very anxious and depressed about how I had got into the situation - I really didnt want to be bankrupt - I wanted to pay back as much as possible but there was just no way I could afford to. The IVA resulted in £36,800 of this debt being written off, which really was a life saver.
My interaction with the company:
Throughout the period of my IVA my situation was changing and when I had a problem I just called them and they were extremely helpful and reassuring.
Why I gave the ratings I did:
I could not fault them on the service they provided and so feel top marks is the only fair result! I really could strongly recommend them.
One thing they did - which really impressed me:
They would kindly remind me with a phone call or email, if I had overlooked something - I am terrible with paperwork and they never complained if they had to send me replacement documents.
One thing they did - which I felt could be improved:
There service was faultless
I am now clear of debt and the whole exercise has made me realise that with the right planning and help, a debt free (Credit-free) existence is not only achievable, but a great feeling. I cannot express the relief I now feel and would stress anyone in financial difficulties to contact Debt Lifeboat NOW

Very informative with lots of useful information. A lot of reviews on firms that really help understand their customer service and ability. The reviews appear to be genuine as they offer interesting insights. Didn't really use the the map but looks impressive!
The site is a bit cluttered and sometimes hard to navigate around.
A useful site that is free to use and full of useful information about IVAs. If you are thinking of doing an IVA then this is a must use site.
