Do you mean a warrant for execution against your property?
Just to confirm, at the moment you have no movable property to speak of where you currently reside?
Okay. I think what they are trying to say is that they are going to issue a writ of execution against your property. Since you have nothing, they can attach nothing. They cannot attach the assets of someone else for your debt either. So, your friends' assets is safe from attachment.
Once they establish they cannot attach any goods, they may issue what is called a section 65 notice. What this is, is a notice that will call you to come to court and provide information pertaining to your financial situation. In that instance, once the notice is served on you, and you do not go to court, then they may issue a warrant for arrest against you for not complying with a court order. Non-compliance being you did not attend court when you were ordered to attend court.
I hope that makes more sense.
