There is something called a pre judgment attachment or garnishment that allows you to attach money before you get a judgment. However its not easy to get, you need to post a bond and meet the specific criteria of the statute. So while there is a possible procedure, its unlikely you can use it. As the other lawyer said, sue, get your judgment and then collect
I agree that without a provision in your lease prohibiting the same services you may be out of luck. However, Georgia law implies in every contract a duty of good faith and fair dealing and while this may not rise to that level to allow you to succeed in court, it may not be too bad an idea to get an attorney to send your LL a strong letter threatening a breach of the lease for basically competing against you.

You are required to return the house as received, normal wear and tear excepted. If you did infest the house with fleas, that is not normal wear and tear. The burden is on the LL to prove you caused this but if there is no mention of fleas on the move in inspection and certainly you would not have moved in if there were, odds are you caused the problem and he can recover the cost to fix the issue
No lender in their right mind would simply change the locks and assume you have abandoned the property, especially since once the open the door, they see all your goods. In Ga they must file a dispossessory or its a wrongful eviction. Send a demand letter and ask for all your goods and the cost of anything that was missing and if they dont reply, file suit,
Make sure you get an attorney and file an answer. This is a subrogation case so the insurance company paid the landlord and now wants you to pay them claiming that you caused the fire. You may have to bring in your landlord if he was responsible for the faulty installation of the fan
