Section 7104 Seizing, reclaiming or returning less than all chattels

Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP)

Where the seizure of two or more chattels is required by the order of seizure, the sheriff shall seize those chattels which can be found. Less than all of the seized chattels may be impounded, reclaimed or returned. The value of the chattels seized, as stated in the affidavit of the plaintiff, or as determined by the court upon application of the defendant, shall be the value for the purposes of subsequent undertakings in the action. Unless the court orders otherwise, the sheriff may, at any time before entry of judgment, seize those chattels not yet seized; the proceedings for reclaiming, impounding or returning a chattel subsequently seized are the same as on a former seizure.
