Section 147 – Provision of debt advice and information package when executing inhibition

417.Section 147 provides that a creditor executing certain inhibitions must provide the debtor (where the debtor is an individual) with a debt advice and information pack. Those inhibitions are—

  • inhibitions in execution of a decree for payment and

  • inhibitions in execution of a decree containing an obligation (other than an obligation to convey heritable property or to grant rights in such property) to perform a particular act where the action in which that decree was obtained also contained an alternative conclusion or crave for payment of money (other than expenses).

418.An inhibition in execution will be incompetent if the debtor is not provided with the debt advice and information package at the same time as the schedule of inhibition is served. The debt advice and information package is the same package required, in the case of attachment of moveables, by section 10 of the 2002 Act (see section 221).
