A sheriff came to my parents home where I reside to do an inventory but wrote on the notice of execution “ family home, debtor has no goods” as I’m currently unemployed and have no goods or property to attach and I showed him proof that the house belongs to my father and he left, not saying what the next step would be. The creditors not being satisfied by this are saying since I claim not to have property the sheriff knows what to do and must attach and the owner will have to interplead. Is this legal as I’ve already shown the sheriff my father’s proof of property ownership
