The boyfriend would have to file a lawsuit and be awarded a judgment before he could take seize or attach property belonging to the accused person/defendant. Judgments can be used to place liens against real property (houses, vehicles, land, businesses, etc.) owned by the losing defendant. Judgments can also be used to garnish wages or levy bank accounts or seize any non exempt property belonging to the defendant.

Can a SECOND mortgage line of credit take your personal belongings?

Mortgages are secured by the real property, not personal property. If the loan is not paid, a second mortgage line of credit may foreclose on the home but your personal belongings are NOT the collateral for the loan. The old popular image of creditors emptying your home of your belongings is largely a myth. You can only be forced to forfeit items used as collateral for a loan. You may be sued by your lender in some cases and face a judgment, and liens can be placed on bank accounts or against other property.
