Bank accounts can only be "frozen" by a court order. A lender can request a court to take such action if it can be proven that the debt has plans to remove the funds from such accounts. Bank accounts can also be 'frozen' when they are jointly held so the non debtor account holder can provide documents to the court showing the portion of the funds in the account that belong to them and are exempt from a judgment creditor.

In most cases, lenders cannot freeze bank accounts. They can, however, in some cases collect money from a bank account without permission from the account owner. That takes a judge's intervention. Most lenders will not go that far.



No. No creditor has the right to freeze a bank account - only the court has the right to do so. Now, if a bank account or any asset with value has been offered as security to the lender, then it is possible that the lender may seek a legal remedy to obtain the asset, however, that remedy is conducted through a civil suit. If the court finds the lender to be in the right, they will rule as judging against the defendant(s) and will provide legal recourse to the lender to obtain an appropriate settlement (but the lender still cannot freeze an account). A bank account can only be frozen by the court in which a suit has been filed against the account holder. The reason for this is to prevent the debtor from removing monies from the account, closing the account or transferring ownership of said account. Accounts that are allowed to be held as TBE by married couples cannot be levied if only one spouse is a debtor. (TBE accounts are not available in all US states and none are allowed in community property states).
