Execution Against Property As A Means To Collect Debt
An execution against property is the process of court, issued by its clerk and directed to the sheriff of the county. Pursuant to Ohio law, there are three kinds of executions:
- Execution against the property of the judgment debtor, including orders of sale
- Execution against the person of the judgment debtor
- Executions for the delivery of possession of real property, including real property sold under orders of sale
In Ohio, a judgment creditor may execute upon lands and tenements, including vested legal interests therein, permanent leasehold estates renewable forever, and goods and chattels not exempt by law.
Ohio law exempts certain interests in property and portions of a debtor’s property from execution. At Delev & Associates, LLC, we have a multitude of experience guiding our clients through the various hurdles a creditor may encounter while executing upon a debtor’s property.
