In the subject of an IVA which was settled June 2015, my

Resolved Question:

In the subject of an IVA which was settled June 2015, my final payment was £1500 which didn't settle all but was accepted by this company.
A debt company has bought the debt and is trying to Persue me
For the remainder £2124.32 it is for the car I had on a monthly payment agreement. I have referred them once to my IVA settlement but they have now sent me a 2nd letter, have not written back as I have nothing further to add, the debt is over 8 years ago, should I email back again reiterating or ignore them.
I still have the car which is 9 years old and worth very little.

Hello Marilyn my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Was the debt included in the IVA, I assume it was?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Hi Alex Yes it was
Expert:  Ash replied 8 months ago.

Then you dont need to pay it. Write back and say you had an IVA and that it was included.

You are NOT liable.

Does that clarify? Alex

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
thanks, ***** ***** have already emailed them with this info, including attachments of original IVA documents to prove it, my question is should I reply again with the same answer, and attachments which is just a forwarding.
Also I'm am still driving my car, which was originally £12.000 I had paid off all but the £2.000 approx.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
One mistake I told you sent over 8 yrs, the debt is only recent in the last 4 years, it is the agreement that is over 8 years old,
Many thanks
Expert:  Ash replied 8 months ago.

It doesnt matter, the debt was included in the IVA.

Forget everything else, the debt is written off at the end of the IVA
Does that clarify? Alex

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I do not have to reply at all.
Many thanks Alex
