AN ACT TO REQUIRE SOME OR ALL OF CERTAIN PAYMENTS TO JUDGMENT DEBTORS AGAINST WHOSE PROPERTY AN EXECUTION HAS BEEN ISSUED TO BE MADE TO THE SHERIFF RATHER THAN TO THE JUDGMENT DEBTOR.
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.
Makes conforming and clarifying changes.
Effective October 1, 2015.
