James, don't know what state you are in But unless your state prohibits it, YES. The lien will "attach" to the property and when she gets ready to sell it, lien will have to be satisfied first.

NO.They can only go after what property was secured by the loan.

Generally, jointly held property passes automatically to the surviving joint owner. It does not become a probate asset so it is not exposed to creditors. However, the situation changes if the creditor attached the property prior to the death of the debtor. Creditors can attach jointly held property while the debtor is living but if a creditor fails to attach prior to the death of the debtor then the property passes to the surviving joint tenant and the creditor is out of luck.

What property can a judgment creditor attach if you do not own real property or vehicles and the only money in your checking account is from regular wages?

They can garnish your wages. Texas only allows a judgment creditor to garnish wages if the creditor has no other options available to execute the judgment. A judgment creditor can levy a bank account including a joint account or a joint marital account. Regular earned income (wages) deposited into a bank account are NOT exempt from creditor seizure. The creditor may also seize and liquidate any non exempt assets belonging to the debtor (bonds, stocks, jewelry, livestock, a specified amount of tools of trade, in some cases household furnishings, etc). Texas is a community property state, therefore, it might be possible for the judgment creditor to seize joint marital property even if only one spouse is the debtor. Some income, however, cannot be attached by creditors or persons who prevail in a lawsuit. For example, disability income, Social Security income and military retirement income cannot be garnished or attached by a creditor.

Can a creditor seize your bank account if your income is not enough?

A creditor can not seize your account unless: 1) They are also your bank and you signed agreements allowing "right of offset" where the bank can take funds from your accounts to satisfy delinquent loans you have with them. 2) Your creditor obtained a court order allowing them to attach funds or place a levy on funds. Insufficient income is grounds for credit denial but I am not aware of any possible situation where funds in a bank account may be frozen or taken when a loan is current and low income is the only problem.

The judgment is against the person and the successful plaintiff can request a judgment lien that can be used by the sheriff to attach and take possession of the defendant's property to satisfy the amount owed to the plaintiff. A judgment lien can be recorded in the land records to attach and take possession of real property.

If a creditor has won a judgment against you can they do a levy also?

The actions available to creditors with a judgment standing against a debtor is called garnishment. A creditor may garnish bank accounts and other financial investment accounts, and wages. In some states, creditors may also attach state income tax refunds. There are several states, however, that do not allow garnishment at all, and in those states, the judgment is worth about as much as the paper and ink used to print it.AnswerYes. The levy is the next step after a creditor has won a judgment against you. Generally, the creditor must request a Writ of Execution from the court. That writ authorizes an officer of the court, usually a sheriff, to seize any property you own to satisfy the lien. The sheriff can freeze your bank accounts, take your car or record the execution in the land records to prevent any sale or refinance of your real property. If you have other property the creditor is aware of the sheriff can seize it too. The sheriff can sell your personal or real property under authority of the Writ of Execution. The only way for you to get your real estate back is to pay the outstanding debt and costs and with every step in that process those costs rise. The process is often referred to as a levy on execution.

In certain situations, property liens can result in foreclosure.

If you have no assets to pay the judgment, but have a job, the creditor will probably look to garnish your wages. If you have no job, the judgment will remain on the docket as a lien against any real estate yo may purchase or inherit in the future and attach to that. Then that real estate can be sold to pay the judgment.If the judgment debtor has no current financial resources which can be attached by the judgment creditor, the creditor will usually wait until the situation changes.Very few people are completely judgment proof, there is usually some form of property that can be seized and sold to pay the debt or have a lien placed against said property until the debt is satisfied.For example, if the debtor owns a home the judgment creditor can place a lien on the property thereby keeping it from being sold, refinanced or a transfer of title until the lien is paid.
