Provincial Writ of Execution Search

A search of a Provincial Sheriff’s Office for writs of execution relating to outstanding judgements.


A writ of execution (also known as an execution) is a court order granted to enforce a judgment of possession obtained by a plaintiff from a court. When issuing a writ of execution, a court typically will order a sheriff or other similar official to take possession of property owned by a debtor. The property will often then be sold in a sheriff’s sale and the proceeds directed to the plaintiff in partial or full satisfaction of the judgment.
