In all cases when two or more executions shall be put into the hands of any sheriff
or other officer, and it shall be necessary to levy on real estate to satisfy the
same, and either of the judgment creditors in whose favor one or more of said executions
is issued shall require the sheriff, or other officer, to make a separate levy to
satisfy his execution or executions, it shall be the duty of the sheriff, or other
officer, to levy said execution, or so many thereof as may be required, on separate
parcels of real property of the judgment debtor or debtors, giving to the officer
making the levy on behalf of the creditor whose execution may, by the provisions of
this chapter, be entitled to a preference, the choice of such part of the real property
of the judgment debtor or debtors, as will be sufficient to satisfy the same. In all cases where two or more executions, which are entitled to no preference over
each other, are put into the hands of the same officer, it shall be the duty of the
officer, when required, to levy the same on separate parcels of real property of the
judgment debtor or debtors, when the same may be divided without material injury;
and if the real property of said debtors will not be sufficient to satisfy all the
executions chargeable thereon, such part of the same shall be levied on to satisfy
each execution as will bear the same proportion in value to the whole as the amount
due on the execution bears to the amount of all the executions chargeable thereon.
