Judicial lien rules change October 1.

Pursuant to Section 55.201-209, Florida Statutes, from and after October 1,2003, any holder of a judgment wishing to obtain a judicial lien on the personal property of Judgment debtor that is subject to execution must file a Judgment Lien Certificate with the Florida Department of State, in accordance with the provisions of that law.

Forms are available on the Department of State's Web site at www.dos.state.fl.us.

No longer will a judgment holder be able to docket a writ of execution with a sheriff for purposes of creating a judicial lien.
