Section 152 – Effect of conversion of limited inhibition on the dependence to inhibition in execution

427.This section applies to the situation where a creditor obtains a decree for payment of all or part of a principal sum in an action in which the creditor had executed inhibition on the dependence. Under section 15J(b) of the 1987 Act (inserted by section 169 of this Act) the court can limit the warrant allowing inhibition on the dependence to specified property. The effect of this section is that when that limited inhibition turns into an inhibition in execution of the decree (which happens when decree is granted) it is no longer limited to that property.
