WHEN THE BANK TOOK BACK THE PROPERTY THEY HAD THEIR REO BROKER COME AND GIVE ME A LETTER STATING THEY WERE THE NEW OWNERS AND I HAD THREE OPTIONS EITHER RENT THE PROPERTY ,TAKE CASH FOR KEYS OR PURCHASE THE SAID PROPERTY. SO I MADE AN APPT WITH THE BROKER TO DO A PURCHASE AGREEMENT, I ALREADY HAD A PROOF OF FUNDS FROM A LENDER. BEFORE I COULD MEET W ITH HIM THE BANK FILED A NOTICE TO VACATE THE PROPERTY AND THEY LISTED IT AT A RIDICULOUS PRICE. THEN THEY FILED AN UNLAWFUL DETAINER. I'M REALLY THINKING IF THEY HAVE LEGAL TITLE TO THE PROPERTY. THIS LOAN WAS MADE BY DOWNEY SAVINGS AND WE NO WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM. PLUS THEY DON'T HAVE A TITLE POLICY ONLY A COUNTY RECORDING THAT SAYS THEY DO.ANYBODY CAN RECORD A DOCUMENT. THERE'S SUSPICITIOUS QUESTIONS HERE.

I agree. You state you are a tenant. You are therefore entitled to a 90 day notice to terminate tenancy before the bank can move forward. If they have already filed the eviction and 90 days have not passed, you will have a complete defense to the unlawful detainer action. What the bank will usually do is file a complaint against the former owner, along with a prejudgment claim of right to possession. Fill out the prejudgment claim and file an answer. Appear at court with a copy of your rental agreement and some manner of proof of your residency, like a driver's license. Unless the Judge phones it in, judgment will enter in your favor.
Now with that said, from the document you have produced it appears that judgment may have already entered. If that is the case, SEEK LEGAL ADVICE IMMEDIATELY from someone who does this for a living.
