If a husband and wife are buying a home but only his name is on the mortgage will there be any problems if he is sued?

If "problems" means would the home be in jeopardy if a creditor sues and wins a judgment, it is possible. How the property is titled and state homestead laws determine what action a judgment creditor can take against a debtor's home not the mortgage agreement. For example, a home that is held jointly by a married couple as Tenancy By The Entirety is not subject to creditor action when only one spouse is the debtor.

Can a judgment creditor force the sale of a home if it does not have a mortgage attached?

If the debtor defaults on a lending agreement the creditor can sue to recover monies owed and if a judgment is granted it can be executed against real or personal property belonging to the debtor that is not considered exempt. Generally the state's homestead exemption will protect a judgment creditor from being able to use a judgment as a forced sale of a primary residence. If the home is owned free and clear it does make a better "target" for a judgment creditor but it is a complicated and lengthy process and not always successful, given that, judgment creditors seldom initiate such action. The titling of the home may also help to protect a primary residence as well as the laws of the state in which the property is located.

Can a creditor take your federal or state income tax refund to pay a judgment?

If the judgment is for state or federal taxes then any refund is subject to seizure by the agency holding the judgment. If it is a creditor judgment, a tax refund would only be subject to attachment if it were placed in a bank account that was being levied by the judgment creditor. I would consult with a tax attorney.

Can foreclosure take a 401K?

Not directly. However, if there is a balance owed on the mortgage once the property has been sold, it is possible in some states for a judgment creditor to seize monies from the account. Please keep in mind that 401K is better protected from creditor judgment by ERISA than an IRA which makes it unlikely that seizure action would occur.


Can a credit card company have a lawyer put a lien on a home?

Lawyers do not have the authority to place liens on property. The creditor would need to sue you in court and win a judgment. It could then request a judgment lien that could be recorded in the land records. You could not sell or mortgage your property until the lien is paid off. The amount would continue to grow since the judgment creditor is entitled to interest and costs.

Can A judgment Creditor take your business?

A judgment is coming against you in the near future. You now purchase land with owner financing. Could this down-the-road judgment force the land to sell considering the funds you used to purchase?

That depends on the laws in your state. Generally, if the debt is large enough to justify the cost of a siezure and sale and if there is enough equity in the land the judgment creditor could sieze the land and keep it or sell it. However, if there is a recorded mortgage prior to the judgment the land will be subject to that mortgage. On the other hand the judgment creditor could simply record the judgment lien in the land records and keep it updated. Under those circumstances you couldn't refinance or sell the property without paying the lien.
