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 and allow them to get clear title.

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 on the house in the amount of the judgement. So, to answer your question, yes, there are ways that a credit card company can put a lien on your house.
