Property Seizures

The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Civil Bureau specializes in property seizures.

Special Dep CopeThe Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office has a proven track record of successful collection on Property Seizure Executions. Ed Cope, our Property Seizure Specialist, has over 20 years experience and has excellent skills negotiating positive outcomes for the Plaintiff/Creditor.  He works diligently to satisfy the Plaintiff’s demands in a professional and expeditious manner.

In some cases, the effective property execution may require the Special Deputy to undertake investigative and collection efforts that go beyond that covered by the Service Fee Statute. Our office has learned from past cases that defendants are much more compliant repaying their debt if collected by a Special Deputy, rather than working out a payment plan with the Plaintiff. These additional services are not part of the standard service and ongoing collection service fees are determined on a case by case basis by the Special Deputy and the Plaintiff.  The fees are billed separately at a rate of $30.00 per hour, plus mileage at the rate set by the Michigan Civil Service Commission.

Call or email Jim Damron, Civil Bureau Manager, for more detailed information regarding Property Seizure Executions.
