I would find an agent that has experience with short sales (like myself) and get the property listed and apply for a HAFA short sale, they will pay you an incentive even if you no longer live in the property. Sell the property back to the investor who has is $5000 in escrow (which he will remove the lis pendens, if he wants the property) and close escrow. Done!
You don't need expensive attorneys to do this. While on face value it seems complicated a competent real estate agent can work this out for you. The Bank will pay for the city violations (if you have a good short sale negotiator) and you can wipe your hands of this situation.
If you would like my assistance, pro-bono of course, because the bank pays all commission, then give me a call at 209-451-5446 and we can chat.

I may be able to help.
I work with investors who would may your home in short sale then sue the lender, depending on the violations. A lawsuit is very expensive to see it all the way thru.
I work for an attorney and we do wrongful foreclosure lawsuits but we can not afford to do this pro-bono.
When was the foreclosure sale rescinded?
Taj is absolutely correct. We Realtors cannot give legal advice and you probably won't find any atty's on Trulia.
You'll definitely be doing yourself a favor by speaking with a real estate atty ASAP!
I wish you much luck in your convoluted situation. It's definitely worth seeing on the news. In fact, you might want to even start there, but calling Call 3. Have them do a news feature on you.
