Thank you for the additional information. In a case like this, both you and your mom should likely consult with legal counsel, since you both may have a cause of action against the bank, if there was fraud, deceit and the bank proceeded in bad faith. Moreover, she could have a basis to file a bar complaint against her attorney, if he/she failed to protect your moms interest and agreed to do this, without obtaining anything in writing. As such, you would want a civil litigation
attorney who handles real estate matters. The best place to obtain an attorney, is through the attorney referral service, which is set up by the New Jersey Bar. I have provided you a link with their information and you can contact them. You want to select the county in which the subject property is located.
