Snapshot: enforcement against real property – saisie

'Saisie' (ie, to seize) is a court-driven Guernsey customary law process governed by the Saisie Procedure (Simplification) (Bailiwick) Order 1952. It is a three-stage post-judgment process which enables creditors to enforce their rights against debtors' realty in Guernsey. The effect of saisie is to vest all of the debtor's realty in Guernsey in the name of the creditor. The entire proceedings can take six to 12 months and place certain burdens on the creditor who initiates them.
