Hello, new expert here..
It appears as though the other expert assisting you was called away on other business..
Adverse possession won't work here because it requires your possession to be "adverse" or "hostile" in other words. If the deed is still in your name, then you can't possess something hostilly that you already own..
What you could try is to file a "quiet title" lawsuit against the bank and seek to have the debt declared beyond the 5 year statute of limitations for breach of contract and then voided out and unenforceable.
This is something that you would need a local real estate attorney to assist with as this isn't something you want to go up against the bank by yourself on as they will definitely have an attorney representing them.
