    Amends GS 162-16 to add that nothing in the statute requires a sheriff or coroner to execute a judgment where the sheriff or coroner has knowledge that the property to be sold to satisfy the judgment is exempt from execution under Article 16 of GS Chapter 1C, and has been so indicated on the writ of execution.


  • Summary date: Apr 15 2015 - More information

    Amends GS 1-359 concerning judgment debtors, requiring individuals that have been notified, as specified, of a judgment to make debt payments to the sheriff in lieu of payments to a judgment debtor until the execution/judgment is satisfied (previously, allowed payment to the sheriff but did not require it). Provides that failing to issue payment to the sheriff is not a violation of this section if the debtor did not know of the execution and did not receive a demand for payment from the sheriff. Provides for a penalty as specified if a debtor makes payment to the judgment debtor after receiving a demand for payment from the sheriff.
