A: It sounds like it was foreclosed earlier and now you are in Sessions Court on a Detainer. Judge will give possession to the new owner and you will get 10 days to get out. Otherwise a Writ of Possession might be executed by the Sheriff. The foreclosure may have not been conducted correctly, but it has already occurred, and setting it aside is almost impossible and very expensive.
