Can they take your house if you do not pay your credit card?
Only if the credit card an "equity line of credit" which is secured by a second mortgage on the property. But then, if her name is not on the house, she couldn't have used it for security on the credit card, so NO.
Will you be forced to sell deceased mother's house in Maryland left to and where family members are living to cover mothers credit card debt?
Yes, the house will probably have to be sold to pay off the credit card debt if there are no other assets. The alternative might be for those that live there and are to inherit to take out a mortgage and buy the house from the estate for the amount of the credit card debt and pay off the credit card bills. This would eliminate the credit card companies placing a lien on the house…
If you don't pay a judgment can they take your house The credit card is in one person's name and the house is in both?
Can a credit card company put a lien on a house that you own with another person or by yourself to try to collect their money?
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…
If you accidentally sent money to the wrong card can you pay one credit card with a credit balance from another?
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. Regardless of why you can't pay, non-payment will result in default. The extent to which a credit card company will attempt to collect depends on whether or not they feel you have sufficient income.
If we transfer the house to a different person after the death of the owner what happens to the credit card debt of the decedent?
I would think not paying on your credit cards would have the biggest effect on them. I'm sure they would care less if you pay on your house as long as you pay them. If you have to make a choice between the two then pay on your house. Your house is more important to your survival and is secured by your mortgage but your credit card is most likely an unsecured loan.
