What can they do?  Can they lein my house in canada? i know my credit will be affect and that collectors will call, no big deal. i just want to know will i get arrested if i go to the states to travel? can they garnish my wages? can they sue me? PLease help

Answer
Chris,

The resort can take the property back but due to the fact that you live in Canada they really have very little recourse other than taking the property and having it show on your credit report. They cannot arrest you or garnish your wages. They could try to sue you, but we have never seen that happen in Canada from Mexico.
