Bankruptcy and Diligence etc. (Scotland) Act 2007

Section 160 – Breach of inhibition

438.This section provides that an inhibited debtor breaches an inhibition when the debtor delivers a deed to a third party transferring or granting a right in any property which is affected by the inhibition. As with sections 150(3) and 159(2) it is the date of delivery of the deed which is relevant. That is the date on which the breach occurs, rather than the date of conclusion of the missives for the transfer or the dates of grant or registration of the deed.
