Multiple subcontractors threatening legal action against my newly built home due to non-payment.

I recently had a home built in Colorado, and it’s looking like the builder did not pay some of the subcontractors he hired for work, specifically the drywallers and insulation installers.

The insulation issue was addressed privately and is hopefully being resolved, but the drywallers have issued a court summons and are requesting a mechanic’s lien and that the home be foreclosed and sold to pay the debts. Is this legal, and can they do this?

I did not contract them, I paid the builder in full for the home, and have a mortgage on the home now. It was a USDA mortgage, paid after completion of the build.

I have to respond to the court notice, and am not really sure of my next steps (other than lawyer up), so if anyone has had to deal with this before, I’d appreciate any input on your experience.

Thanks!
