In June of 2012 I sold a property . I was forced to sell from an order to show cause .i agreed to consent without seeing any order and was told by my closing attorney that a closing was done without any one at his office. No down payment and or documents circulated at all. when going to his office after he was rude and vulgar. presented a HUD-1 and ask me to sign it I only needed to know whey I have no court order and he was upset for me asking him. The buyer he told me had a few more days on the time of the essence to close. I was told after the day signing HUD-1 to go to the buyers office to get the closing documents . I did and the buyers attorney told me to get them from my attorney . I later found out nomoney was exchanged . Along with my realtor misrepresenting me as well as threats . Also the realtor when asked to go over the closing documents told me they did not know until the sale day and refused to go over the documents. Also told me if I do not drop the keys off I would receive another letter from the buyers attorney . Clearly the realtor had an interest more then there commissions .She coerced me to sell well below comps. I waited one year for proceeds as well.
You can always litigate, but you cannot always win. If you signed all of the paperwork, you will have a tough time litigating and winning as on its face you appear to have entered into the sales contract by your own choice. You may want to gather all of your paperwork together and sit down with an attorney to go over your story to see if you have any options.

Hard to believe a real estate agent and attorney would lie. Lol. Sit and discuss with a local attorney.

You sold property I assume that the property is worth many thousands of dollars. I do not suggest that you proceed on your own. Rather it is worth the money and your time to consult with an attorney on you issue and who can dig into the facts and give you some advice...
Sounds like you have been the victim of a fraud. I would retain a real estate attorney asap
Sounds like a mess of extraordinary events. This has all the elements of a scam. However, it is impossible to know based just on this question. This is a very complicated matter, where just hiring an attorney to make heads or tails of what happened will likely cost thousands of dollars. Obviously, there is a lot at stake. The main problem, even if it is possible, is that once you do something, it is much harder or impossible to undo it after the fact.
Hire an attorney. Likely you may have signed something that can be used against you. An attorney needs to review all of the factors here as soon as possible.
