I have an existing writ of execution from 2007. the defendant has a house for sale, should I get a lien on the house or does the writ cover me when the property is sold ( I think it will be a short sale)

The writ will not help. You should have your judgment docketed with the Clerk in Trenton. That will impose a state-wide lien on any real property owned by the judgment debtor. Move quickly. The judgment must be docketed before the sale takes place.
