If the persons living on the property are the ones who owe for the inspection but are not the owners, no. The person owed does however, have other options for collecting the debt.

No. If you owe the debt the home inspector cannot place a lien on property you don't own.

It is entirely possible that they can place a lien on the house. The hospital is entitled to place a claim against the estate and its assets. If the house is an asset, they can attach a lien to it to get their money.

Yes, a creditor can definitely place a lien on someone's home. In fact, a lien can be placed on anything that the individual owns.

Yes, however the judgment lien would take second place after the existing lien(s).
