Deposits to execute levy

In addition to fees for service, an additional deposit may be required to execute your levy.* Levy deposits are estimates of costs based upon the combination of statutory fees and anticipated expenses related to performing a particular type of levy. Additional deposits may be required in order to offset the actual expenses related to the handling of inventory, moving, safekeeping of property and conducting execution sales. A deposit, sufficient to pay the costs of seizing and storing property, is a prerequisite to the performance of any levy by the Sheriff's Civil Unit. Any portion of the creditor's deposit that is not actually used will be refunded to the judgment creditor. Any deposit paid and used by the Sheriff to execute the levy will increase the total amount to satisfy the judgment.

*Court Order on Application for Fee Waiver can not be used for payment on levy deposits.
