Nevada Civil Practice
Sec. § 21.020
Writ of execution: Issuance; contents.


The writ of execution must be issued in the name of the State of Nevada, sealed with the seal of the court, and subscribed by the clerk, and must be directed to the sheriff; and must intelligibly refer to the judgment, stating the court, the county where the judgment roll is filed, the names of the parties, the judgment, and if it is for money, the amount thereof, and the amount actually due thereon; and if made payable in a specified kind of money or currency, as provided in NRS 17.120, the writ must also state the kind of money or currency in which the judgment is payable, and must require the sheriff substantially as follows:

1.

If it is against the property of the judgment debtor, it must require the sheriff to satisfy the judgment, with interest, out of the personal property of the debtor, and, if sufficient personal property cannot be found, then out of the debtors real property; or if the judgment is a lien upon real property, then out of the real property belonging to the debtor on the day when the abstract or certified copy of the judgment or decree was recorded in the office of the county recorder of the particular county to whose sheriff the writ was issued, stating the day, or out of the real property afterward acquired by the debtor before the lien expires.

2.

If it is against real or personal property in the hands of the personal representatives, heirs, devisees, legatees, tenants of real property, or trustees, it must require the sheriff to satisfy the judgment, with interest, out of the property.

3.

If it is against the person of the judgment debtor, it must require the sheriff to arrest the debtor and commit the debtor to the jail of the county until the debtor pays the judgment, with interest, or it is discharged according to law.

4.

If it is issued on a judgment made payable in a specified kind of money or currency, as provided in NRS 17.120, the writ must also require the sheriff to satisfy it in the kind of money or currency in which the judgment is made payable, and the sheriff shall refuse payment in any other kind of money or currency; and in case of levy and sale of the property of the judgment debtor, the sheriff shall refuse payment from any purchaser at the sale in any other kind of money or currency than that specified in the writ; the sheriff collecting money or currency in the manner required by this chapter shall pay to the person entitled thereto, the same kind of money or currency received by the sheriff, and in case of neglect or refusal so to do, the sheriff is liable on his or her official bond to the judgment creditor in three times the amount of money so collected.

5.

If it is for the delivery of the possession of real or personal property, it must require the sheriff to deliver the possession of the property, particularly describing it, to the person entitled thereto, and may at the same time require the sheriff to satisfy any costs, damages, rents or profits, recovered by the same judgment out of the personal property of the party against whom it was rendered, and the value of the property for which the judgment was recovered to be specified therein; if a delivery thereof cannot be had, and if sufficient personal property cannot be found, then out of real property, as provided in subsection 1.
