Are you saying you do owe the money?
I don't see your province here. Can you please provide it before I answer?Thanks
In Ontario you can buy yourself a bit more time in terms of putting in your statement of defence.
You can prepare and serve a Notice of Intent to Defend and that gives you another 10 days.
So you have close to a month to sell the house.
If that doesn't work you can either ask the lawyer for the bank to give you a bit more time to put in a statement of defence or otherwise try to negotiate with the bank.
If none of that works you can also put in a statement of defence which will then buy you some more time but if the legal costs of the bank go up they will want more to settle.
Does that help as a starting point?
