Response: Unfortunately yes. However, they would be attaching on your partner's interests in relation to the house. As for the bank accounts, they are not supposed to attach the accounts if they are joint accounts. However, this does not necessarily mean that someone in the bank who is not paying attention is not going to let the attachment through. In the event that the accounts are attached, then a complaint should be filed with the Court to remove the attachment.
