(a) Notwithstanding the death of the decedent, a judgment for possession of property
or a judgment for sale of property may be enforced under the Enforcement of Judgments
Law (Title 9 (commencing with Section 680.010) of Part 2 of the Code of Civil Procedure). Nothing in this subdivision authorizes enforcement under the Enforcement of Judgments
Law against any property in the estate of the decedent other than the property described
in the judgment for possession or sale.
(b) After the death of the decedent, a demand for money that is not satisfied from
the property described in a judgment for sale of property shall be filed as a claim
in the same manner as other claims and is payable in the course of administration.
