A "Request and Order To Seize Property" was taped to the door of the condo were I live. The deed to the condo is not in my name nor do I own the furniture or the appliances in the condo. Will this "request and order to seize property" allow them to enter the condo and seize furniture/appliances without determing who actually own these items ?
Welcome and thank you for your question!What date is listed on the order of when they will come to act on it?
The request & verification date on the document is June 24, 2007
The next date on the document next to " I declar that the statements above are true to the best of my information, knowledge and belief is June 1, 2012
The last date next to " Endorsement: I certify that I received this order" June 18, 2012
Does the order list the contact information of the officer who is going to come and enforce it?
It has a signature in the Plaintiff/Attorney line for signature
and a judges name stamped on the Judges line for signature
and a signature on the Court Officer/Deputy Sheriff line for signature
Thank you. Does it list a phone number for you to contact the court officer/deputy sheriff?
Yes it was on the business card attached to the document and it was also on the second page process srvices letterhead that was attached to the document describing the amount I owed and how to prepare a check for the payment
Thank you. Do you plan to simply pay the officer by check and settle the matter?
I am without income at this time and unable to pay any monies do I have any options ?
I am unable to make any payments at this time
Thank you. Then you should call up the officer and inform him/her that you got the notice and inform him/her that you do not own the condo. Yes, the officer can seize property that you own. The officer cannot bust into your residence, however.You want to read this document: http://www.mcodsa.com/associations/6841/files/Manuscript%202006.pdf It's the procedure for Michigan Court Officers to follow when seizing property for a judgment.Seriously.
