Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. I am sorry to learn of this levy against you. Unfortunately, "writs of execution" or levies do not require the creditor to give notice to the judgment debtor. Your landlord may continue to levy or otherwise continue to pursue the debt until it is paid in full (including interest, collection costs, and any attorney's fees).
I hope that my answer was of assistance to you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. Thank you for your business!
In other words we were taken to court without a chance to respond and our former landlord can continue to run up expenses at our cost. And anything I replace our possessions with, he can take us back to court and take possession of?
Who determines what the property he has taken is worth?
One last question. The letter I have states:
"the following personal property seized and taken in execution by me: amount due $5,174.21 + costs & interest" Does this say that what he is receiving is worth the amount listed?
