Personal Property Attachments

Understanding Personal Property Attachments

A personal property attachment is a legal tool employed to secure the debt owed by a debtor. It involves placing a lien on the debtor’s personal property, which includes assets such as equipment and belongings. This attachment is publicly and officially recorded with the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth. The primary purpose of this lien is to complicate the debtor’s ability to sell or dispose of their assets and personal property without settling the outstanding debt. It acts as a legal impediment, requiring the debtor to address the debt before engaging in any transactions involving the attached property.

In Massachusetts, seeking payment often involves strategic legal actions, and personal property attachments can be a powerful method. By obtaining a writ of attachment, a deputy sheriff is authorized to seize the debtor’s personal property or filing a bulky attachment, creating a tangible consequence for non-payment. This approach provides a lawful means to apply pressure and encourages debtors to address their financial obligations.
