The answer to your question is yes, they can enforce the judgment that they have against you; however, if you are making payments, then the HOA is likely not going to do that. If they were to enforce the judgment, they would also have to go back to the court and request another hearing so they could force you to pay - not something most of them enjoy doing. Accordingly, as long as you are making payments toward satisfying the judgment, you should probably not expect that they will take your home.
