Freeman Jones standard conditions

There are 'Standard Conditions' that make up part of every Individual Voluntary Arrangement ('IVA') proposal put forward by our clients.

Because we produce very high volumes of these IVA proposals, creditors do not want to see a separate copy every time. As such, we have decided to make them available on our website.

We will no longer send paper copies of these with our clients' IVA proposals. Of course, we will be happy to provide paper copies upon request.

The Standard Conditions have been developed and amended over time, and therefore the terms that apply to each IVA depend on when it was arranged.

You may notice that in our version of the original conditions, some items in the index are noted as 'deleted'. This is because the provisions dealt with by that item are contained in the particular proposal for each client.

More information about the Standard Conditions can be found on R3's website at http://www.r3.org.uk.
