It is important that you locate a copy of the documents that you signed. Without them, there is really not much information I can provide you. You already know that you will have to file an answer or risk a judgment being rendered against you by default. Typically, though, an answer includes defenses. In this case, you don't have the papers that you signed and you don't know the terms you agreed to. Those documents define your rights and responsibilities and will determine whether or not they have a case against you; those documents will also help the court to determine whether or not you have any valid defenses. If you are unable to locate the papers, then you may want to contact the Realtor, lender, closing law office, and clerk of court's office to see if anyone still has copies of the documents for you to review.
