If you still live there, naturally you can deduct the amount of the judgment from your rent.

If you no longer live there, a better option would be to serve the landlady's bank with a restraining notice (see your cancelled rent checks for the name of the bank, the branch address, and the account number).

You could also serve the present tenants with restraining notices. Restraining notices require the person or company served to hold back twice the amount of the judgment.

Ultimately, the sheriff or a city marshal can collect the amount of the judgment, plus interest and fees, from the people or companies served with restraining notices.
