A home was puchased by a third party at foreclosure. The owners of the home did not object and did not show up at the forclosure. The bank(or bank's hired law firm) foreclosing did not add the interest properly and was short on their bid by $11,000. The sale went through to the third party. Within the 10 day period, the bank filed a motion to set aside the foreclosure. The buyers, named as intervenors, contested the motion and have won the case after 5 months. The sale was confirmed and title issued.
The buyers, who did nothing wrong and puchased without any knowledge of a calculation error, have incurred attorney fees as they fought the banks motion to set aside.
As an intervening third party, are they entitled to their legal expense fees?Any other thoughts on this?
