The lien of a judgment for money upon real estate of the judgment debtor embodied in Sections 8-386 and 8-390 of the Virginia Code has been radically changed by the Acts of 1960, c. 466 and c. 255 respectively. How these amendments affect the liens of judgments obtained before as well as those obtained after the effective date of the amendments (June 27, 1960) will be considered below.
