Many agencies charge a fee or retainer for asset searches on defendants who have Judgments issued by the court against them.
Our office conducts asset searches as a courtesy for attorneys and plaintiffs who do business with us in Norfolk County. If you have a ‘Judgment’ or ‘Execution’ issued by the court and wish to review your options to collect from a judgment debtor, contact us and we will discuss the different options open to you or your client. Our comprehensive asset searches are important to attorneys who are trying to determine if there are sufficient assets to warrant an attachment or seizure.
With our Asset Check Report, attorneys will receive a comprehensive report outlining our findings on their judgment debtor. The report will identify any real estate, motor vehicles, equipment, or other assets of the judgment debtor. The Report will identify the location of the assets, what can be seized, asset values and the expenses incurred in executing a seizure. In many cases the costs incurred in a seizure can be deducted from the sale proceeds. Real Estate assets can also be levied by the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office in order to satisfy a Judgment.
If you are interested in an Asset Check (No Cost), please send a copy of your original Judgment/Execution along with a cover letter (or fill out our form) to the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office. We accept this form by email, fax and direct mailing service. We will contact you with the results of the asset search and information on any additional services our office may be able to provide.
