Personal Property (Writ of Possession)


A judgment for possession of personal property may be enforced by a Writ of Possession of Personal Property. The purpose of the writ is to restore possession of specific item(s) of personal property to the judgment creditor. 

A Writ of Possession of Personal Property permits the levying officer to satisfy the judgment by seizing and delivering the specified property directly to the creditor. If the property cannot be found, or if delivery can not be made, the writ may be returned to court and reissued as a money judgment writ for the value of the specific property.
