Collecting on a Judgment

Judgments are a very powerful tool that dramatically increases the odds of a creditor collecting against the debtor. In evictions cases a judgment will require the tenant to pay all back rents, late fees, court costs, attorney's fees, and any other relevant damage.

The eviction judgment is basically mandating the tenant to pay the landlord the sum of these damages. After making a written demand for the awarded damages most people will not voluntarily pay. However,this is where the judgment itself can help you recover your money.

A judgment can give you the power to garnish wages, levy bank accounts, or place liens on certain assets. Without the judgment all you can do is beg for your money. But with the judgment you can get people to pay you whether they want to or not.
