My colleagues all correctly point out that there could be serious consequences for notarizing a signature known to be false. Obtain a transcript of the trial testimony and copies of the documents in question to bring to an attorney for review. It appears as though the true object of your question is to find out how to obtain your share of the proceeds of the sale, but that is a discussion to have confidentially with an attorney of your choosing.See question

I just moved in a few months ago. The other tenant and I just received notice that this house will be foreclosed on in July because the landlord has not paid her city taxes in three years! If this happens, how long do we have to get out of our apa...
The most likely scenario is for the landlord to pay the back taxes and redeem his or her equity, which would leave things exactly as they were before you received notice of the pending tax foreclosure. In the event the landlord either does not or cannot redeem, the tax foreclosure suit would proceed and eventually the property would go to auction and change ownership with a referee's deed. If that occurs, the new owner takes ownership of the property subject to your lease.See question
