If the attachment has not been dissolved, as provided in this subchapter, judgment
may be given for the plaintiff in the attachment at the second term after issuing
the writ as in other cases of attachment, and thereupon the Court may order that the
sheriff shall sell the property attached, on due notice, and pay the proceeds, deducting
legal costs and charges, to auditors for distribution. Any balance remaining due from the defendant in the attachment to any of the parties
after such distribution of the proceeds may be collected as other debts, and any surplus
after paying costs shall be returned to the defendant or the defendant’s executors,
administrators or assigns. All sales made under this subchapter shall be good against the defendant, the defendant’s
executors, administrators or assigns.
