Judgments of probate courts, municipal courts, county courts, and other courts inferior to the court of common pleas may be made liens upon lands and tenements of a judgment debtor within any county of this state only in the manner provided in section 2329.02 of the Revised Code. The certificate of such judgment shall be made by the clerk of any such court or judge of a county court except that as to all judgments mentioned in section 5309.54 of the Revised Code, when the certificate is to be filed in the office of the county recorder in order to obtain a lien upon registered lands, the same shall be procured and issued as provided in said sections. When any certificate of a judgment of any such court made by the clerk of such court or judge of a county court has been filed in the office of the clerk of the court of common pleas of any county, and docketed and indexed therein, execution may be issued out of such court of common pleas upon such judgment, and such further proceedings to enforce said judgment may be had as if the same had been rendered in such court of common pleas. If stay of execution of any such judgment is obtained, such facts shall be certified by the clerk of the court rendering the decision or the judge of a county court, to the clerk of the court of common pleas, who shall enter a memorandum of such stay upon the judgment docket. Such certificate of judgment shall be used instead of a transcript in every case where it is or has been provided by law that a transcript of a judgment shall be filed in order to obtain a lien upon the lands.
