Judgment Creditor Questions

A judgment creditor is a party that has proven they are owed a debt through a legal proceeding and is allowed to use the court system to collect that debt. State laws offer access to a debtor's property in order to satisfy the debt owed. This means the court can seize a person's personal property and money. The debtor is summoned to court to evaluate the value of their property. The property is usually held under a lien until the debt is paid. Once the debt is completely paid, the lien will be lifted from the property. In some cases, the person's property will be sold to satisfy a debt. Below are a few of the more commonly asked questions regarding judgment creditors.

In Virginia, does a judgment creditor have a duty to notify the Court when a judgment is paid in full? If so, what is the citation?

Once a judgment has been satisfied, by law, the judgment creditor or his/her attorney should make sure the judgment is released. However, when a judgment debtor pays the judgment, the debtor can request that the judgment creditor sign a document stating that the judgment has been satisfied (they received their money). When the judgment creditor has signed the document, it can be entered in the docket and with the court. If you would like to learn more, here is a link to the Virginia Court Form for Release of Judgment Lien. http://www.courts.state.va.us/forms/circuit/cc1463.pdf

Once you have filled out the form, you need to send it to the judgment creditor. Request that the judgment creditor sign the Release of Lien and have the document notarized. When these steps are completed, you need to take it to the court house and have it docked and filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court.

If I want to enforce a foreign judgment in CO, must I hire a CO attorney? Can my in-state attorney file the judgment?

You can file a foreign judgment in Colorado in order to domesticate it. This doesn't require an attorney. You will need to file a certified copy of the judgment and a notice of foreign judgment in the Circuit Court clerk's office where you want the document to be enforced. When you file, the judgment will be noticed under the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution and the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, C.R.S. Section 13-53-101. You will then be able to seek collection.

Can judgment against an RI LLC member be charged to the business? The member with judgment is 59% shareholder that is not active in the business

If the judgment is against the member and not the LLC, the judgment can't be applied to the LLC. However, if the judgment creditor wanted to take the member's interest in the LLC, they would have a controlling interest in the LLC. The only thing that would prevent this is if the LLC Operating Agreement stipulated a vote on all decisions would be required or if there were provisions listed that would entitle the LLC members to buy the interest.

If I purchase a judgment from a judgment creditor, would I ask the court to list me as the judgment creditor?

In a situation like this, there is no need to have your name added to the judgment. As long as you have a contract that states you have bought the interest in the judgment from the creditor. With the contract, you can enforce the collection on the judgment through court or a collection agency.

A judgment creditor is the party who is owed a debt and has proven to the courts that the debt is valid. When a judgment creditor is awarded the judgment, they have the ability to seize the debtor's personal property in order to satisfy the debt. If you owe a debt or someone owes you, you should consult an Expert to clarify your doubts and assist you with your individual situation.

Recent Judgment Creditor Questions

  • I am on SSA. Recently I was informed that a certain person

    I am on SSA. Recently I was informed that a certain person had hired attorneys in order to sue me for defamation of character and stealing all of his tools. That none of this is true is not the question. The question is: Can I, while on SSA actually be sued by this person?
  • Any advice on if I should get a Lawyer and if so what kind,

    Any advice on if I should get a Lawyer and if so what kind, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Situation: I have had a water leak in my condo since January. Basically we have been going back and forth since then, the source of the leak has not been identified and the results of a mold test I had done last week indicated I know have black mold (toxic mold) growing where the leak was.
    I wrote the email below yesterday after I received an estimate on the repairs needing to be done (Mike is the Property Manager from Kass Mgmnt and the all references everyone on my condo board who the email went to as well). I did have to cut out what the articles said because I did not have enough room for this but I hope this gives you an idea of what I have been going through since January and still have not had any action on repairing my unit.
    _______
    Mike,
    I tried giving you a call around 5:27pm CST today after I finished my work call to follow up on next steps but once again got your voice mail. I did leave a message earlier on both your work line and cell phone trying to follow up on the estimate I sent over.
    All (as I am not sure this is something Mike can address or if it needs to be addressed by the Board),
    As suggested by my insurance company (Allstate) as well as a friend who is a real estate attorney, I looked over our Declaration of Condominium Ownership and of Easements, Restrictions, Covenants and By-Laws for The Grove at Greenleaf Condominium. Although not the most enthralling reading material I found several articles of interest Please see below.
    (Removed articles: 4.5(c), 4.5(d), 5.8 (viii) (c), 5.9 and 8.1; not sure if these are all standard but I did not have enough room for them they basically referenced common element repair, insurance and negligence for not repairing comment elements)
    Although I only read through this document briefly and by no means do I consider myself a lawyer, it seems as though this should go through the insurance as this damage is to an area that is insured. If we are going through the insurance as Mike said in an earlier email today thanking me for my concern, why have they not gotten involved? Why have I been the one that has been coordinating all of the testing, estimates, repairs?
    Regardless, once again after speaking with my insurance agent and going to my friend for some off the record legal advice they believe this should have all been coordinated through an insurance company.
    I need the work to be scheduled this evening, at which time the company is expecting payment. As identified above in Article 4.5(d) I shall not have a claim to the Association unless agreed upon in advance by the Board or Association or the Declarant.
    If I am to pay for all of this I need agreement in advance, I will be fully reimbursed for:
    1) The cost of the repairs,
    2) Common expenses during the period of reconstruction
    3) Any additional costs incurred if while the repairs are occurring it is identified the leak has not been fixed or is being caused by a larger issue resulting in the work being unable to be completed until the source of the leak has not been fixed or is being caused by a larger issue resulting in the work being unable to be completed until the source of the leak has been remedied.
    4) If the above situation occurs, I need to know my common expenses will continue to be paid for until my unit is fully repaired and fully reconstructed back to its original state prior to the leak occurring.
    Please confirm and agree upon the four items above as I need to schedule the repairs this evening.
    Additionally, according to the declaration all of these items are reasonable and in my opinion gross negligence on the part of the Association as well as property management company to not have taken the correct action to remedy this leak when first identified.
    I hope we can move forward to ensure the proper steps are now taken to restore my unit to its original state. I would think any of the other Unit Owners should be entitled to the same as we all either paid for our property or are paying a mortgage on our property and to have damage done to it at no fault of our own (in this case my own) is a very serious matter which I do not feel has been dealt with in the appropriate manner.
    I have been made to feel as though I am asking for something unreasonable, however; a leak is a very serious matter of which as stated in our Rules and Regulations under Rule #1. Common Elements "The presence of leaking water is considered an emergency". Had we followed the rules to begin with this issue would not have occurred and we would not be in the situation we are in now. Please do not make me feel like I am being unreasonable any longer as this is not something I enjoy or want to continue to deal with.
    I look forward to your reply and approval/advanced agreement to reimburse me for the four items above this evening.
    Kind Regards,
    Cathleen
