Section 163 – Reduction of lease granted in breach of inhibition
442.This section applies where an inhibited debtor grants a lease of land affected by inhibition. A lease granted in those circumstances will be reducible if it has at least 5 years left before comes to an end as at the date on which the action for reduction of the lease is raised. A lease which is not capable of lasting 5 years after that date will be reducible only if the Court of Session is satisfied that in all circumstances it would be fair and reasonable to reduce it. Subsection (4) specifies how to calculate the unexpired duration of a lease.
