High Court upholds creditor’s challenge to the validity of a N. Ireland IVA prepared by an English IP
In a judgment delivered on 11th June 2015 in the case of Bank of Ireland Mortgage Bank –v- Brenda Mary Sheridan & Patrick Andrew Eoin Sheridan  NICh 12, the High Court ruled that a meeting of creditors convened to consider the debtors’ proposals for an individual voluntary arrangement (IVA) was invalid and therefore the subsequent IVA that was deemed to have been put in place had no binding affect on the debtors’ creditors.
