Chapter : CHAPTER 70 - EXECUTIONS
1. Execution for the enforcement of a judgment of a Justice Court
may be issued by the justice who entered the judgment, or his successor
in office, on the application of the party entitled thereto, at any time
within 6 years from the entry of judgment.
2. The court, or any justice thereof, may stay the execution of
any judgment, including any judgment in a case of forcible or unlawful
detainer, for a period not exceeding 10 days.
[1911 CPA § 841; RL § 5783; NCL § 9330]—(NRS A 1961, 193)
The execution must:
1. Be directed to a sheriff of any county in the State or to a
constable of the county in which the Justice Court is located.
2. Be subscribed by the justice.
3. Bear date the day of its delivery to the officer.
4. Intelligibly refer to the judgment, by stating the names of the
parties, and the name of the justice before whom, and of the county and
the township or city where, and the time when it was rendered.
5. State the amount of judgment, if it be for money; and, if less
than the whole is due, the true amount due thereon.
6. Contain, in like cases, similar directions to the sheriff or
constable, as are required by the provisions of chapter 21 of NRS, in an execution to the sheriff.
[1911 CPA § 842; RL § 5784; NCL § 9331]—(NRS A 1969, 184)
An execution may, at the request of the
judgment creditor, be renewed before the expiration of the time fixed for
its return, by the word “renewed” written thereon, with the date thereof,
and subscribed by the justice. Such renewal has the effect of an original
issue, and may be repeated as often as necessary. If an execution is
returned unsatisfied, another may be afterwards issued.
[1911 CPA § 843; RL § 5785; NCL § 9332]
1. The sheriff or constable to whom the execution is directed must
execute the same in the same manner as the sheriff is required by the
provisions of chapter 21 of NRS to proceed
upon executions directed to him, and the constable to whom the writ is
given, and his successor in office, shall have all the powers and be
subject to all the duties and liabilities therein given and imposed upon
2. Sales of real property shall be made at the front door of the
office of the justice of the peace. If the sale be of real property in a
county other than the one in which the judgment was rendered, the sale
shall be at the front door of the office of the justice of the peace of
the county in which the property is situated, nearest the property.
[1911 CPA § 844; A 1913, 364; NCL § 9333]
The provisions of chapter 21 of NRS are applicable to Justice Courts, the word
“justice” being inserted in lieu of the words “judge” and “clerk”
whenever they occur, and the word “constable” being substituted to that
end for the word “sheriff.”
