The title company's job is to clear your title prior to the conveyance. If there is no judgment lien prior to closing, it may not get paid and released. Then the creditor would probably try to collect from your bank.

if you have a copy of the lien, then you should contact a construction lawyer or perhaps a collections or real estate lawyer and find out how long that lien is valid. Once you are aware of that, then you can decide how to proceed.
You should contact a lawyer and provide more information to the lawyer, such as what type tickets, the status of the tickets, where and who issued the tickets, and what you are trying to accomplish at this time. Good luck.
More information is needed to answer this question, such as why do you or anyone else believe you are responsible for your father's debt? You should consider hiring a lawyer to defend you----the entity suing is represented and very much willing to take advantage of a non-represented person.
If you fail to respond timely, then the creditor will seek a default judgment against you so please make sure you handle this timely. If you have the resources, I would contact an attorney in your area---collections or general practice---and discuss this matter with them, obtain your options and...View More
