There are certain ways to stay an order of compulsory execution and prevent your property from being seized immediately. Most of them involve a court order stating that compulsory execution is not permitted against the property in question for one of several legal reasons. Authenticated civil records, settlement agreements or other documents that state that compulsory execution is not to be carried out against the property also result in a stay of compulsory execution.
Compulsory execution can also be stayed by submitting documents showing that other property has been put up as security to avoid compulsory execution or performance of some service has been in exchange for revocation of compulsory execution.
It is always best to consult with an attorney before attempting to stay an order of compulsory execution in order to ensure that you present the best possible case. If you have any questions about compulsory execution in Japan, please contact our office to set up a legal consultation.
