Does the debtor (you are the creditor) live in the warehouse?
If the warehouse was claimed as the homestead, and if you can prove that the warehouse was not the homestead at the time of filing - and this should be easy to do - you can claim that the petition was filed fraudulently. This can result in a complete dismissal of the case, or at least a denial of the motion to avoid the lien.
By the way, moving a trailer into the warehouse does not make the warehouse a homestead (the trailer would be the homestead) - even if he had been living in the trailer at the time of filing.
Does claiming the exemption under 11 USC 522 (d)(5) under the amended motion to avoid lien have any effect on my judicial lien against the warehouse
That statute only protects the first $1075 of the value of the property (plus the additional $10,725 of any unused homestead exemption). The rest of the MV can be turned over to creditors. So the statute has an indirect affect on your lien.
