§38-4-30. New execution when property sold is recovered from obligor on indemnifying bond or purchaser.
When property sold under execution, or its value, is recovered from an obligor in an indemnifying bond given before such sale, or from a purchaser having a right of action on such bond, the person having such judgment or execution, or his personal representative may, by scire facias, or motion after reasonable notice to the person or the personal representative of the person against whom the judgment or execution was, obtain a new execution against him in the latter case, for the amount for which the property sold, with interest from the day of sale, and in the other cases, for so much of the judgment as remains unpaid. Such scire facias shall be sued out, or such motion made, within five years after the right to sue out or make the same.
