Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I am very sorry to learn of this situation. Unfortunately I have very bad news for you on this issue.
New York has no "redemption period" following a foreclosure sale - this means that as your coop was foreclosed on two days ago, you do not have a legal right to redeem the property.
The new owner now has a right to evict you from the property.
Here is a description of the entire procedure (you are now in the final two steps): http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/ny-foreclosure-laws-procedures.html
You can find the buyer information by contacting the trustee that conducted the sale (this should be on the notice that your roommate picked up). You should be able to work out a move out plan with the buyer as most are willing to negotiate something with the occupant in order to avoid the time and expense of having to go through an eviction proceeding in court.
Again, I am very sorry.
The site stated that you requested to another attorney. I am a different Attorney. Where you in Chapter 7 or 13?
