Title 12 : Court Procedure

Chapter 123 : ATTACHMENT OF PROPERTY

Subchapter 002 : ATTACHMENT OF PERSONAL PROPERTY

(Cite as: 12 V.S.A. § 3251)
  • § 3251. Attachment or levy of execution by filing

    When personal property is taken upon a writ of attachment or execution, the officer serving such process may lodge a copy of the same, with his or her return, in the office or offices proper for the filing of a financing statement to perfect a security interest in such property under 9A V.S.A. § 9-401. Such lodgment shall hold the property against all subsequent sales, attachments, or executions as if it had been actually removed and taken into the possession of the officer, and different officers thereafter may serve in like manner other writs of attachment or execution so as to create a valid subordinate lien upon the same property. Where such process is required by this section to be lodged in any office other than that of the town clerk in the town where the property is found, it shall be sufficient if the officer sends a copy of the process by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, to the appropriate office. (Amended 1971, No. 185 (Adj. Sess.), § 89, eff. March 29, 1972.)
