I won a monetary default judgment against the condo homeowners association in small claims court.

Can I deduct the judgment amount from my monthly fees I pay to the homeowners association?

No. If you know the bank's location, then that is one remedy. You can also serve an information subpoena to locate assets.

No. But you should know where they bank - just look at your cancelled check - and serve a restraining notice and information subpoena. Once the bank responds you have the Sherriff execute on the Judgment.
