I recently built a new house that closed on May 7, 2010. A couple months later my builder went out of business and now I am getting calls from contractors and liens in the mail for materials and services he did no pay for. I have done some research and it would seem that we may not be liable since we paid the builder in full. This was a standard conventional loan and closing where the builder had their own construction loan. Are we liable and how do we get the contractors to leave us alone.
