I paid off a Consent Judgment in full. Now the lawyer wants to charge interest on the consent judgement and will not release the lien he has on my property. There was no interest ever stipulated in the consent judgment. Just terms of payment. He said he did not wave interest. Can he charge me interest
the consent judgment was over a civil claim that never went to trial. Now the lawyer is using evidence of the civil claim against my wifes inheritance? Can he use invidence from a settled claim like that
Even on a consent judgement? They gave us 10 months to pay the judgment off. We paid it off. Interest was never even mentioned until after the payoff
Does the interest start the day the judgement was signed or does it start on the due date to pay in full?
