SECTION 8013
Expenses of sheriffs
Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) CHAPTER 8, ARTICLE 80
§ 8013. Expenses of sheriffs. (a) Publication of notice of sale. A
sheriff, where real property is to be sold by virtue of an execution or
in pursuance of a direction contained in a judgment, is entitled to
reimbursement for printer's fees, paid by him for the publication of a
notice of the sale. Where the notice is published more than four times,
or the sale is postponed, the expense of continuing the publication, or
of publishing the notice of postponement, shall be paid by the person
requesting it. Where two or more executions against the property of one
judgment debtor are in the hands of the sheriff at the time when the
proceeds are distributed, the sheriff is entitled to reimbursement for
printer's fees upon only the execution issued upon the judgment first
docketed in the county.

(b) Appraisal of attached property. A sheriff, where an estimate of
the value of property levied upon by virtue of an order of attachment is
made, shall be entitled to reimbursement for such compensation to
appraisers actually employed thereupon as the court which granted the
order of attachment may allow.

(c) Other expenses. A sheriff is entitled to reimbursement of all
expenses necessarily incurred in the execution of any mandate and in the
protection, presentation, transportation or sale of property.

(d) Payment in advance. A sheriff, whenever he deems it necessary, may
require payment to him in advance to cover any or all expenses for which
he is entitled to reimbursement; advance payments made in connection
with a mandate or direction affecting property shall be repaid by the
sheriff out of the proceeds of the sale of the property, if any.
