It's going to show up on your credit that you do have this lien. It will count against you as a liability. With regards to title insurance, they do not typically run buyers for liens/judgments unless it's a new home purchase. If it was recorded in another county than your going to purchase the property, then the title company is not going to look for judgments against you in another county.

Not necessarily. Depending on the loan program and lender, you may be able to purchase if you can show proof of a payment agreement AND that you have at least made 12 verifiable payments.
