Can I be sued for non-disclosure of a condition that I didn't know about or that even existed when I lived in the house?

Question Details: I recently sold my home. The new owner is now coming to me saying that I did not disclose water entering the garage. In my 6 years of living there I never had water enter the garage, nor did I know water would enter when I filled out the disclosure form. He is threatening to take me to court via breach of contract and wants me to pay for the cost to fix it.
