Yes. The creditor can sue the debtor in Texas and use a judgment award to place a lien against property belonging to the debtor. I'm not a lawyer and would encourage you to call one. But I believe the previous answer is incomplete. If you reside in Texas, and you LIVE in the home in question, a judgment award cannot really be used against that property. If they put a lien on the house, all you need to do is claim "homestead exemption" and tell the creditor to remove the lien. They are required to do that. If they refuse, you can sue them for damages. The creditor can place a lien on OTHER property that you own (i.e. not your primary residence). Or any property that you inherit.
