You need an attorney to address the objections to sale. If you prevail, the certificate of title will be issued. If you do not prevail and the sale is voided, the amount you paid will be refunded.

You can check with the clerk of courts to see if any objections have been filed. It is unclear if one was actually filed. If one has been filed then your money will be held by the clerk pending resolution of the objection. I would suggest hiring counsel if an objection gets filed. They may be able to speed the process along and will certainly protect your rights and your money.

If there is an objection to the sale, you would need to have that objection resolved before the Certificate of Title is issued. You would ask the Court to confirm the sale and the party making the objection would ask that the sale be set aside.

Generally, it is difficult for a party to set aside a foreclosure sale, unless there is a substantial irregularity with the sale process. You may wish to review 45.031, Florida Statutes.
