A detailed description of any property sought and the relevant code section. The letter of instructions must be signed and dated by the plaintiff and or attorney of record.

Certain types of levies, such a real property levy and sale, require very specific instructions. You should be familiar with the specific legal requirements of your process or notice before you submit your paperwork.
