Does ownership of additional property other than “household” classify as exempt for a writ of execution?

I just won a small claims case against my old landlord who didn’t return a 1K security deposit. He has an acre of land registered under his name (land only). Is it possible to have this auctioned off after the writ of execution is obtained?

Good question. The one (1) acre parcel of your former landlord that you have a judgment against is not exempt from a levy with respect to the judgment that you have.

I suggest that you have an abstract of judgment prepared and sealed by the court. When received, record it on your former landlord's property. Such most likely will end up getting your judgment satisfied in full in the near future.
