This is likely an issue best referred to an attorney for their input....A number of things come to mind...Did you have a lease agreement with the owner? Were you notified that you needed to vacate the property? Were the utilities in your name? Were you receiving mail? etc.
Our recommendation is to not accept the fact that the bank assumed you had moved from the property and offer evidence to that effect.
Nevada law states that a tenant's belongings must be stored for a minimum of 30 days for the tenant to come and collect them. However, there may be a few different laws regarding your situation due to the foreclosure.
Were you aware that the home was being foreclosed on? Typically the bank posts several notices on the front door of the home to warn the occupant of the foreclosure process. You would have received a Notice of Default several months back stating that the homeowner was in default of their mortgage. This should have thrown up a red flag to you knowing that the bank was going to end up possibly foreclosing. They also post a Trustee Sale Notice to the door as well a few weeks prior to the foreclosure auction.
You are welcome to email me your address and I will pull it up and see if I can find who took the property over for you. This way you may be able to contact them about your belongings. I am always willing to help someone if I can.
