You may find in your efforts to collect on a debt that getting the money judgment is a lot easier than actually getting the money owed. This article will give you an overview of what to do after your day in court.
Essentially, a money judgment states that you (formerly the plaintiff and now the judgment-creditor) are owed a fixed amount of money from the debtor (formerly the defendant and now the judgment-debtor).
In an ideal world, the judgment debtor recognizes his obligation and immediately pays you all moneys due.  However, in case that doesn’t happen for you, there are ways through which you may enforce your judgment and get the money that is owed to you.

If you do not wish to go to too much trouble and do not mind waiting for your money, then you may simply docket the judgment with the Clerk of the Superior Court in Trenton.  Once the judgment is docketed in Trenton, it forms a lien on any real property that the judgment debtor owns.  Should the judgment debtor seek to sell property, or often when he tries to finance any major purchases, he will be required to satisfy the judgment.

If you are unwilling to wait several years, or do not believe your debtor will ever be in a position to make a major purchase, you will have to take a more proactive approach to collecting on your judgment.  Here are a few ways to collect.

On January 13, 2014 the Senate and General Assembly approved and passed P.L.2013, CHAPTER 186, Assembly, No. 3625 concerning emergency operations plans in senior occupied buildings. This act takes effect immediately.

The new law revised P.L.2001, c.80 (C.52:27D-224.1) and amended it to read as follows:
1. a. An owner of a multiple dwelling, as defined under P.L.1967, c.76 (C.55:13A-3), which is comprised of more than 20 dwelling units and reserves occupancy for residents who have attained the minimum age of 55, shall annually prepare and  maintain an emergency building evacuation plan for the multiple dwelling, in coordination with the appropriate local fire and emergency response agencies. A copy of the plan shall be filed with the municipal emergency management coordinator.

On January 21, 2014 Governor Christie signed into law S-2018.  This legislation is an attempt to “even the playing field” by allowing a Court to award a successful tenant legal fees where the landlord has the right to recover legal fees by virtue of its lease.  It also requires residential landlords who have such a clause permitting them to recover attorneys’ fees and costs to notify the tenants of this law in bold face type.  It requires the immediate use of this new language in all new leases commencing February 1, 2014.

The remedy of the tenant is available if the tenant successfully defends any action or summary proceeding commenced by the landlord arising out of an alleged failure of the tenant to perform any covenant or agreement in the lease or as a result of any successful action for summary proceeding commenced by the tenant against the landlord arising out of a failure of the landlord to perform any covenant or agreement in the lease.

Concrete has high strength when it is compressed, or 'squeezed'. However, it is extremely weak when it is subjected to tension, or 'pulled'. Deicers can react with weakness and cause havoc.

Upon appearance, concrete may seem like a very dense material.  However, in reality, it is like a sponge. It can and does absorb water.  This can be easily observed on a summer day.  Pouring water on a sidewalk, you may actually observe the water penetrate (be absorbed by) the surface of the concrete.   Quality concrete should contain air voids.
