DAILY LAW TIPS
by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
“You Cannot Enforce A Judgement After 2 Years and 6 Years Against A Party and His Representatives Respectively.”
Where judgement is given by a court, the judgment creditor has 2 years to enforce such judgment against the judgement debtor. Where a judgement creditor intends to enforce judgment against any representative of a judgment debtor, should be done within 6 years. Also note that were time elapses, court can grant leave.
My authorities are Order 4, Rule 8 of the Judgements (Enforcement) Rules and section 94 of the Sheriffs and Civil Process Act.
