Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I'm very happy to help you with your question.
When you say you have a writ against this person, what exactly is this about?
Do you know where the person is and do you know where their assets are?
You cannot use the writ from Ontario in BC.
You will need to take the Judgment you have obtained in Ontario and then register it in the Court in BC where he lives.
Then you can seek to enforce the order there.
I suggest you consider retaining a lawyer or a paralegal to do this for you.And it will be much cheaper to have his bank account seized or his wages garnished rather than seizing his land as that will cost you a lot unfortunately.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
You should go to the Sheriff's office without a doubt.
But I believe they are going to tell you that they have the discretion not to enforce and do so when the costs of enforcement are unreasonable in relation to what you are owed.
But for sure see what they say. You can likely even call them during regular business hours.
Did you call the Sheriff's office?
