Operative words 'once someone has bought a house'. Shows how little you know about the process. You have zero experience in collecting on judgements because all your information is dead wrong. The house has to have been bought first for the writ to be filed against it and by that time the mortgage is already on and the writ stands in latter priority. Banks do not care about what subsequent charges are on the property since they maintain their priority. Ever heard of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th mortgages? Banks don't care about them either. Further more, bailiffs are never involved. It's only the Sheriff and once a writ is filed he does not visit the property and come to visit the property at all so there is no wife not 'taking kindly to the bailiff coming repeatedly'. When the property is sold the lawyer involved on the sell side is obligated to pay out the charges in order of priority and that includes writs filed. Sheriffs have nothing to do with the property itself and never visit and certainly not Bailiffs.FrancisBacon wrote: ↑Nov 24th, 2018 9:43 amWrong again. I have lots of experience collecting on judgements. Including collecting on ones that are so old that there was more due on interest and fees than in principal.
But once someone has bought a house, they will pay. The bank won't take kindly to having a judgement mortgage registered on the property. The wife won't take kindly to a bailiff coming repeatedly.
So, a number of things have to happen here: 1. They have to own or purchase a property, you have to know that and find the property as it could be out of province and then they have to then sell it. 1 may not happen and if it does 2 could take many years.
