How is "equity"? How does my "equity" relate to my lVA? What time do I have to look at the "equity clause"? What percentage of my equity should I try to publish? What should I do to try to release the equity? If I cannot release the entire amount of capital claimed, what happens?
If I cannot release enough equity or no equity at all, what happens? How is "equity"? When you own your home (or other property), "equity" is the actual value of the real estate less the entire amount owed on a mortgages and other credits thereon. He' s got 150,000 pounds in his possession right now.
He' s got a 75,000 pound overdue. He' also got a secure credit on the premises, 25,000 pounds overdue. Well, his equity is £50,000. As Bob in the example above, you may have some equity in your real estate. However, you may also find that you have zero equity - or even no equity - if your unsecured mortgages and collateralized credits are higher than your actual real estate value.
How does my "equity" relate to my lVA? In principle, if you have equity in your real estate, this value is considered an assets by your lenders. Equity clause" in your proposed Investment Act means that you may need to try to release part of your equity and make payments into your Investment Act for the good of your lenders.
For your own safety, the "equity clause" contains stringent rules on the amount of equity you must release, and what happens if you do not get a re-mortgage or other kind of collateralized credit for release. What time do I have to look at the "equity clause"? Compute your equity:
The IVA vendor will use this information to find out if and how much equity you have in your real estate. Below under "How much equity of my equity portion must I try to release" see how this is worked out. Treat the equity clause:

It depends on how much of your property's equity is worth: It is never anticipated that you will attempt to release your entire equity stake in your real estate, as the calculation is made on 85% of your interest in the real estate.
He' s got 150,000 pounds in his possession right now. He' s got a 75,000 pound overdue. He' also got a secure credit on the premises, 25,000 pounds overdue. Bob's overall capital in the above example is 50,000, but he can only be asked to provide a £42,500 limit to deposit into his IVA.
When Bob is not able to obtain further funding on his land or engage a third person to bring that amount into the IVA, he may instead make 12 extra months' contribution to the IVA. There may be other policies regarding the amount of equity you may be asked to release and the further borrowings you make to release it, dependent on the particular terms of your "equity clause" and on any changes by your lenders.
Those directives could for example contain the following: When you have a common mortgages with someone else, your lenders can only ask you to try to release a portion of your equity in the flat. Your belongings are currently valued at £150,000. Your open mortgages are £75,000. You also have a secure credit on the premises, with 25,000 pounds overdue.
Bob's above example is £25,000 of the property's equity, but he can only be asked to release up to a limit of 13,750 to be paid into his IVA, as any re-mortgage may not amount to more than 85% of the loan to value in his interest in the real estate.
What should I do to try to release the equity? You have to try different ways to release the amount of equity demanded by your borrowers. If I cannot release the entire amount of capital claimed, what happens? Dependent on the new lender's requirements - and working within the above mentioned policies - you may find that you can release some equity from your real estate, but not the full amount required.
If you can demonstrate that you can't release any more money, your lenders can either agree to the lower amount, or they can determine that you need to do something else instead (see below for more details). If I cannot release enough equity or no equity at all, what happens?
It is possible that you may not be able to release enough equity to meet the criteria of your "equity clause". Maybe you cannot release any equity at all - for example, if you are rejected for a re-mortgage or collateralized credit. If so, your lenders may ask you to do something else to reimburse them for the fact that you have equity in your real estate that they cannot reach.
