No papers yet I just brought a house in July that's why they might be doing that

Ok, then they are past the 6 year statute of limitations in TN for them filing suit under a breach of contract claim. If they didn't sue you before Nov 2015, then they would be time barred from doing so now...

.

So it you were never served with a summons and complaint before now, you are in the clear..

thanks
