facing forelcosure from prior owner's lien

Hi there

We purchased a property last year and went thru the normal closing and title insurance process. However, now a lien holder has come forward and has started to foreclose on our house for a lien that belonged to the previous owner (the seller in our case) that they said was released due to a mistake. Can they foreclose my property to recover that lien even though I had nothing to do with it and when we bought the property the lien was showing as a release.

Please advise.
