Seizure of vehicle

Verified 23 December 2021 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Someone owes you money? In this case, you are the creditor and the person who owes you money is the debtor. If you are the creditor, you can force the debtor to pay his debt by instructing a commissioner of justice (formerly a bailiff and judicial auctioneer) to seize his vehicle. If you are the debtor, you are not notified of the seizure until it occurs. But then you can challenge the seizure, particularly if the Commissioner of Justice does not respect the rules of the seizure procedure.
