My lawyer verbally, and in writing, agreed to pay a judgment secured against
me on a civil bond. By so doing my mother’s property would be released. The
judgment creditor cannot be located causing the payment to revert to the
Commonwealth, which he is against. He is willing to execute an
Indemnification Agreement under which he agrees to accept full responsibility
for any claims against my mother’s property should such a claim be made.
About eight years are remaining on the life of the judgment, my mother is 80
and in bad health. At the time she signed the bond he told her the property
would be released in about six weeks. Should my mother enter into an
agreement with him or would it be wiser for her to secure a lawyer?
