A Garnishee Order to Repay Debt

Here the court orders someone (usually the bank) who owes money to the consumer, to pay the creditor instead of the consumer. So for example, if the consumer had R5 000 savings in their bank account, and owed the creditor R3 000, the court would order the Bank to pay the R3 000 from the consumer’s bank account to the creditor.
