Minutes of seizure

When your immovable property is seized (for example, a commercial building), the bailiff produces minutes of seizure containing the following information:

  • mention of the title under which the seizure is made;
  • the date of the notice of execution and the name of the seizing creditor;
  • the date and time and the nature of the seizure;
  • a description of the property seized;
  • the name of the custodian and, if an authorization was granted by the court, a reference to that authorization.

The minutes of seizure are registered in the land register, along with the notice of execution and proof that both documents were served on you.
