Good evening. If the buyer will not pay voluntarily, file a suit for collection due to the breach of contract. Once the suit is filed and a judgment awarded, then as plaintiff, you become a judgment creditor and and can have the sheriff serve a summons on the losing party for a debtor examination. That forces the losing party to meet the judgment creditor in court and answer questions under oath about the losing party's assets. After the that information is obtained, the judgment creditor has the power to garnish wages, attach bank accounts, and/or have the sheriff seize other property to satisfy the judgment.
