In an eviction case a foreclosure deed holder is the plaintiff and the tenant or homeowner are the defendants being sued for possession of the home. The defendant-homeowner has the right to raise all the same defenses to defeat a plaintiff’s claim of title and possession that they could have raised had they brought their own lawsuit against the bank for wrongful foreclosure. Furthermore, tenants of a homeowner have the right to raise the same defenses against a foreclosure deed holder that the homeowner could have raised to defeat a plaintiff’s claim to valid title over the residence.
