Hello, if the bankruptcy was filed after the foreclosure sale, then there is nothing you can do to reverse the sale.

I would not trust any company that says they can help you without researching them on the better business bureau and whever else you can, because there are a lot of people out there who will try to take advantage of you in this situation.

The only grounds for reversing the mortgage would be if you didn't get all the proper notices of the foreclosure, but you seem to have so that wouldn't work.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
