WHAT ARE MARHALS
The City of Buffalo Marshals are officers of the Civil Court and are authorized to enforce orders from the Landlord/Tenant, and Small Claims. The Marshal’s responsibilities include, among other things, collecting money judgments on behalf of creditors and carrying out evictions and legal possession proceedings. The Marshal collects fees, which are set by statute, and retains a small percent of the judgment amount (called poundage). The fees and poundage are added to the judgment amount and ultimately paid by the debtor.
