Unless the debt is proved to be invalid there are not options to avoid a property lien once the creditor has obtained a judgment if that is how the creditor chooses to enforce the judgment writ. The one exception might be property held as Tenancy By The Entirety by a married couple. Please be advised that a Mechanic's Lien for repairs and/or improvement on the property can be filed without the due process of a lawsuit.

Can a collection agency place a lien on a home if the mortgage and the deed aren't titled to the person owing the debt?

No. Collection agencies (or any other agency/organization that lends money) cannot place liens on property that is not owned by the debtor. If they could, then what would stop them from placing liens on just anyone's property? In order for them to place a lien on a property, the person must be on title. Of course, there might always be some lawyer out there who might beg to differ and try to take it to court...but then again...if they're willing to take the debtor to court, they can just have a judgment placed against them by the courts.
