Execution Lien Law and Legal Definition

Execution lien is a lien on property seized by levy of execution.

The following is an example of a case law on execution lien:

The execution lien is unquestionably a judicial lien and its enforcement unquestionably impairs the exemption that the debtor would have been entitled to claim but for the lien. [In re Wilkinson, 196 B.R. 311, 316 (Bankr. E.D. Va. 1996)].
