Is the IVA in your name or your husband's name? Either way, if you have not been declared bankrupt and you do not have criminal convictions then you are unlikely to be refused due to an IVA.

Me and my husband are on IVA

Expert:  Howard replied 3 years ago.
It should still not be a problem. As previously stated, if there is no criminal (court) conviction then you should not be refused simply on the basis of the IVA.
