He is on title for property before we married . If we buy a home after marriage and someone sues him for the cleanup, can they take or lien our house since his name would be on title of the home purchased together?

If the home is purchased during marriage it is likely community property. If some sort of tort liability is imposed because of pollution caused by the home, the community would be liable. If the community is liable, a lien may be attached to the house depending on the financial situation of the community. Based on the wording of your question, it is difficult to determine whether or not the community would be liable.
