Not in the sense that an officer of the court contacts credit bureaus and gives them the pertinent information. There are hundreds of businesses which only do searches of public records and then sell the information to other business, credit bureaus, attorneys, private citizens, and so forth. The credit bureau itself would not be able to take on such an arduous task and still maintain quality productivity (assuming they do, which is a BIG assumption).

Yes and no. The contractor can file a lien against your house for non-payment.

No lien can be filed against your car. However, if the contractor gets a judgment against you, that judgment may be executed against your car and home to secure payment.
