Money Judgment Collection: Real Property Liens

Continuing in our series about money judgment collection, here’s another option for how judgment creditors can collect from debtors. We’ve already discussed wage garnishments, bank levies and even what to do if you don’t have any information on the debtor’s assets. Another common method of collection involves placing a lien on the judgment debtor’s real property.

Money Judgment Collection: Wage Garnishment

In the last post on this topic, I suggested that the judgment creditor first try asking the judgment debtor to pay the amount to satisfy the judgment. If getting the debtor to satisfy the judgment willingly is out of the question, it is time for the creditor to assess the debtor’s assets. In the best scenario, the creditor has some knowledge of the debtor’s assets and finances, even if only in a very general sense. For example, if the creditor knows the debtor is currently employed, then they can try to garnish the debtor’s wages.
