I purchased a water softener unit for my house and I recently found out that the finance company placed a lien on my property as soon as the contracts were signed. The payments have been paid regularly and up to date when I found out of the lien on my property. Can this be done without a judgement?
answered on Mar 6, 2019
It depends on what you signed. It might be that you gave them a lien on your home, like a mortgage.
It is not a judgment lien in all likelihood.

You cannot be thrown in jail for failing to pay a lender. You can be jailed for contempt of a court order. Follow the orders of the court and you won’t go to jail.
You may not have to pay if your income is ssa, ssd, retirement or certain other “exempt” income.
Check with a lawyer or legal aid.
