T​hey would have to first get a judgment against you before they can try to put a lien against property.

In Michigan once there is a judgment and the funds hit your account they can be garnished.

Certain types of income are exempt from garnishment before they are paid to you, including: unemployment compensation, workers’ compensation, state and federal civil service retirement benefits, and military retirement benefits. State law also exempts Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA’s) and life insurance payable to a spouse or child of the insured.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
