What is the name of your state? PA I won a judgement 1 1/2 years against a former tenant for rent in arrears after they moved out. They just disappeared , no forwarding address and quit their jobs. Any idea how i can track them down? I also need to know how to (if possible) attach their current or future assets. Also can I get interest for the time they haven't paid either from the first unpaid mo0nth's rent or the date of the judgement in magistrates court? Thanks for any help. I really appreciate it.

have you considered calling a bill collection agency or judgement collector to see what would be involved with them collecting for you ?

Q1) "They just disappeared , no forwarding address and quit their jobs. Any idea how i can track them
down?"
A1) You can hire a PI or skip-tracer.

Q2) "I also need to know how to (if possible) attach their current or future assets."
A2) Until you can locate the debtor, you will have a hard time locating any assets.

Q3) "Also can I get interest for the time they haven't paid either from the first unpaid mo0nth's rent or the date of the judgement in magistrates court?"
A3) You cannot collect pre-judgment interest (you could have asked for it in your judgment, but you can't do this after the fact). Most states provide for a statutory post-judgment interest, and it is usually noted in the judgment itself. For example, PA has a 6% statutory judgment interest.
