Hello: This is PhillipsEsq. I am a licensed Attorney and I will be assisting you today.

Response: You need to try to settle. Even if your Social Security benefits cannot be attached, you have other assets that can be attached. A lien can be put on your vacant lot. If you purchase the new property, the Judgment creditor would put a lien on it to satisfy the Judgment. It is better to settle the debt before putting any property in your name—before buying the property.
