A judgment can be collected by levying on your assets, such as wages, bank accounts and property. If the judgment is used to levy on a house you own, then yes, you could be evicted by the new owners after the levy is completed and the house is sold. That is not a quick process.

Otherwise, eviction is generally done by landlords for unpaid rent.

If you were notified of an eviction proceeding, unlawful detainer, for some reason other than unpaid rent, then consult with an attorney to determine what is actually going on.

Depends on how old. It would have to be a judgment on an unlawful detainer.

Did the default judgment have anything to do with your current lease? As long as you are current on your payments there should not be a valid reason for your eviction.
