An inhibition is a means of enforcing a debt. If a creditor takes out an inhibition against a person who owes them money, the inhibition prevents them from selling or transferring ownership of their home or taking out any further secured loans on the home. This is to ensure the debtor doesn't then use the proceeds from the sale of the home to pay for anything else. Inhibitions are recorded in the Register of Inhibitions and Adjudications (sometimes called the ROI or Personal Register). You can find out more about inhibitions here.
