Question On Sigilian Law

I know, there might not a lot of people still lurking here, but I just found this site recently and was hoping someone might stumble across this and chip in their two cents.

I recently started running a new Planescape game (5e, 127 Ha, mostly just cobbled together with whatever I could find online) and the subject recently came up on what happens to a criminal's property if jailed or executed. Specifically who would seize the property and assure it goes to the right place. The answer I've settled on now is that the Takers would primarily be responsible for taking care of anything these criminals own outside of whatever personal affects they had on them at the time of the arrest since their the ones most focused on this sort of thing, but I've been bouncing back and forth about it maybe being the Harmonium's job instead. Maybe in conjunction with the Guvners.

None of the material I've looked through has given me any sufficient answers, and it's an obscure enough question that I can't exactly Google it, so any input from someone more familiar with the world would be infinitely helpful.

Well, actually I'd come to exactly the same conclusion. This job would definitely fall to the Takers - this is precisely their role within Sigil as well as within the philosophic spectrum of the factions.
It might be tempting to tie various administrative processes to the Guvners and the Hardheads, but in this case it would clearly encroach on the Takers territory. Actually that's the perfect opportunity to highlight the role of the Fated within the bureaucracy of the Cage.

Thanks Decay

That decision did feel right when I made it, I just couldn't find any clear evidence to support it.

I think the most similar

I think the most similar issue we can find in official material is probably the foreclosure and confiscation of Bigby's College of Academic Arts (now the Hall of Records) upon a debt one week late in payment (Factols Manifesto).

If the Dabus got to a

If the Dabus got to a building that was stuck in litigation before the case was resolved, it might just plain be lost somewhere in Sigil.
