DIVISION 3
CHAPTER 2 - JUDGMENT FOR POSSESSION OF PERSONAL PROPERTY

714.010. (a) A judgment for possession of personal property may be enforced by a writ of possession of personal property issued pursuant to Section 712.010. (b) In addition to the information required by Section 712.020, the writ of possession of personal property shall contain the following: (1) A description of the property to be delivered to the judgment creditor in satisfaction of the judgment. (2) The value of the property if specified in the judgment or a supplemental order.

714.020. (a) To execute the writ of possession of personal property, the levying officer shall search for the property specified in the writ and, if the property is in the possession of the judgment debtor or an agent of the judgment debtor, take custody of the property in the same manner as a levy under a writ of execution on such property in the possession of the judgment debtor. Custody of personal property used as a dwelling shall be taken as provided by Section 700.080. Custody of property in a private place shall be taken as provided by Section 699.030. If the levying officer obtains possession of the property specified in the writ of possession, the levying officer shall deliver the property to the judgment creditor in satisfaction of the judgment. (b) If the property specified in the writ of possession cannot be taken into custody, the levying officer shall make a demand upon the judgment debtor for the property if the judgment debtor can be located. If custody of the property is not then obtained, the levying officer shall so state in the return. Thereafter the judgment for the possession of the property may be enforced in the same manner as a money judgment for the value of the property as specified in the judgment or a supplemental order. (c) The writ of possession of personal property may, under the circumstances described in subdivision (b), be treated as a writ of execution.

714.030. (a) After entry of a judgment for possession of personal property, and whether or not a writ of possession of personal property has been issued, the judgment creditor may apply to the court for an order directing the judgment debtor to transfer possession of the property or documentary evidence of title to the property or both to the judgment creditor. The application shall be made on noticed motion if the court so directs or a court rule so requires. Otherwise, the application may be made ex parte. (b) The court may issue an order pursuant to this section upon a showing of need for the order. (c) The order shall be personally served on the judgment debtor and shall contain a notice to the judgment debtor that failure to comply with the order may subject the judgment debtor to being held in contempt of court
