Can you obtain a mortgage with a garnishment?


Recommended Posts

I have a default judgement of $5K placed on me back in 1997 and had my wages garnished in 2003. I left that company and the garnishment stopped. I received notice that another default judgement had been filed. The court judgement dropped off my credit report in 2004. I've put a contract on a house. I'm supposed to close on the house in 12/05. Can I still close on the house if my paycheck shows that I'm being garnished? Will the closing attorney/titling company check for any judgements against me?
