I would check with a real estate attorney. As far as I know there was a period of time to cure the default of the loan. If you have gone beyond that point , you may have no recourse. If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email, Good luck.

Ity has been my experience so far with the banks I work with that they will not let you or a relative purchase the property back. It is one of the questions asked when I submit an offer.

You can't get a loan for quite sometime now that you are foreclosed. The lender also will have big problem with you buying it back while just claimed you could not afford paying the mortgage on the house.

It will be pretty difficult to get the same house back unless you have great reasons to support your actions before and now.

If your lender foreclosed on your home, the only way to get it back is to purchase it from them.

You need to speak with a foreclosure attorney. They will let you know what your options are depending on if it was a judicial forclosure or nonjudicial foreclosure.
