In the event of a foreclosure of your renatl property, your personal assets such as bank accounts would be subject to a levy by the judgment debtor. However, your social security and pension checks would not so long as they are not commingled with your bank accounts.

Your mobile home could be subject to a levy, but your 10 year old car if worth less than $8,000 would not.
