It depends. Some credit cards come to you as equity loans (you activate the card, it gives you a limit on the card equal to the equity on your house) and if you don't pay off the loan, the house belongs to the company. If it is a regular credit card and you don't pay, they may take you to court and win a judgment against you. That would allow them to put a lien on the house in the amount of the judgement. So, to answer your question, yes, there are ways that a credit card company can put a lien on your house.

You will default on your credit card accounts. Being an unsecured loan, there is little a credit card company can do. That is a risk credit card companies take.
