I recently worked with a couple who went through a very similar situation. You are definitely going to want to seek the advice of a knowledgeable real estate attorney. Call or e-mail me and I will be happy to provide you with the attorney's contact info.

I believe James is correct..... However it is best to seek the advice of a very good attorney as there may be several issues that might be addressed.
In any case.... I hope that if there is any chance of getting better, it happens to you.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
