Generally anyone can sue for anything if you can make a case and it is withing some bounds of the law. If the occupant is not the owner in the case you set forth then no the occupant can not sue for adverse possession because the occupant does not have ownership standing. If the occupant has a lease or lease hold then the occupant may be able to sue for unlawful eviction since the lease could be considered an asset to the property and that the leaseholder has contractual rights to the property as a lease only. If the occupant is the owner and the taxes are paid then a motion must be made to the referee or the court to forbear on the auction as the debt has been satisfied. Until the keys have been transferred the owner may be able to re acquire the property--as is under the case presented here. Hope this helps. Best, ***** ***** rate me.
