Section 151 – Effect on inhibition to enforce obligation when alternative decree granted

426.This section provides that where there is an inhibition to enforce a decree for performance of a particular act and subsequently a decree for the alternative conclusion for payment is granted (for example, following failure to comply with the original decree), the inhibition continues in force and is treated as if it was executed to enforce payment under the later decree. Without this provision, the inhibition would lapse and a new inhibition would have to be executed to enforce the decree for payment.
