I had been in a DMP for 2 years with little chance of discharging my £100k+ debts. I was approached by Cleardebt who explained the options available to me and the IVA seemed the most appropriate.
My interaction with the company:
I had an in-depth discussion about the various creditors and decided to proceed. The process took some time because of the number of creditors and the need to arrange a creditors meeting convenient for all.
Why I gave the ratings I did:
I very rarely give a 10 rating in surveys because there is rarely an opportunity to grade anybody outstanding or exceptional. In this case, the service I have received from Cleardebt over the last 3 years has been excellent.
One thing they did - which really impressed me:
Managed to have one significant creditor discounted totally because of how their paperwork was completed. This could only have been done by having a thorough knowledge of their field.
One thing they did - which I felt could be improved:
They lost my return for 2014 due to a document scanning fault. Once identified this was explained to my satisfaction and rectified.
Preparing for the expiry of my Arrangement in October 2016, but likely to extend because of increasing equity in my property. My dividend was 35%, which implied a writing off of >£70k.

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.
