Section 154 – Inhibition not to confer a preference in ranking
429.This section abolishes the rule that an inhibition confers a preference by exclusion in any sequestration, insolvency proceedings or other process in which there is ranking. Inhibitions no longer confer any preference. However, this section does not affect any preference in a sequestration or proceedings where the inhibition is executed before this section comes into force even if the ranking process itself does not begin until after the section comes into force. Subsection (4) defines “insolvency proceedings”.
