SECTION 6218
Sheriff's duties after levy
Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) CHAPTER 8, ARTICLE 62
§ 6218. Sheriff's duties after levy. (a) Retention of property. The
sheriff shall hold and safely keep all property or debts paid,
delivered, transferred or assigned to him or taken into his custody to
answer any judgment that may be obtained against the defendant in the
action, unless otherwise directed by the court or the plaintiff, subject
to the payment of the sheriff's fees and expenses. Any money shall be
held for the benefit of the parties to the action in an interest-bearing
trust account at a national or state bank or trust company. If the
urgency of the case requires, the court may direct sale or other
disposition of property, specifying the manner and terms thereof, with
notice to the parties to the action and the garnishee who had possession
of such property.

(b) Inventory. Within fifteen days after service of an order of
attachment or forthwith after such order has been vacated or annulled,
the sheriff shall file an inventory of property seized, a description of
real property levied upon, the names and addresses of all persons served
with the order of attachment, and an estimate of the value of all
property levied upon.
