I am being sued, have had moveable property attached. I have however paid more that the judgement amount. The attorney's however say I still owe an outstanding amount. Do they still have the right to get the sheriff to execute the warrent
No, but remember that interest, sheriff fees, and attorney fees are also obtained when default judgment is granted.If you have paid the full amount, judgment must be rescinded.To to this you can bring an application before the court.Once it is rescinded the sheriff may not execute the warrant
