What is your legal question, please? (What would you like to know?)
You can file a motion with the Bankrutpcy court asking that your official file time be changed, based on the information you provided.
You can also contest the auction sale, as if the auction started at 10:00 am, it is highly unlikely that ownership of your property was transferred before 10:11 am. This is because it takes time to run the auction, and then to sign the papers transferring the property. The time that matters per Bankruptcy law, is the time the property actually changed hands, not the time the auction began.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.Thank you!

By federal law (the Protecting Tenants in Foreclosure Act), your tenant must be given at least 90 days to move if the buyer will be living in the house. If the buyer will not be living in the house, your tenant can stay at least until the end of the leaser term (October 2014).
