Depending upon what kind of lawsuit it is, unless the documents underlying this dispute require the parties to arbitrate you can only ask the court; and if you mean you want court ordered mediation the same applies. Ask.
I received a letter from an attorney telling me to pay the rent to a local bank instead of the landlords son, which I had been doing. I contacted the bank about the heater needing repair. They told me that since they don’t own the property they are limited in what they can do. Should I pay for... Read more »
Missouri law provides a specific procedure for making repairs and deducting the cost from the rent.

Yes, they can attempt to collect the judgment in Florida. If they record it in the county where the house is located, that constitutes a lien. They can collect the judgment by, as is most common, garnishing your wages or bank account. If that happens, you will be given a hearing at which you...Read more »
I live in Florida. Rented an apartment in February of 2019, 2 months later the apartment goes into foreclosure... Can I legally stay until my lease ends in February ? I was told I have 90 days to move out
Who told you to move out in 90 days? The landlord/ mortgagor/ defendant in the foreclosure action can't evict you unless you have violated the lease. Otherwise, the purchaser at the foreclosure sale can evict you; has the foreclosure sale been scheduled yet?
You have rights under the Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act. In the event the house you are renting is foreclosed upon, you have a right to a minimum of 90 days notice before your lease can be terminated. And if the buyer is a business or other entity that has no plans to use the home as a...Read more »

It's difficult to know why you are being sued without reviewing the complaint, but it does appear that you shouldn't have been named in the suit. Contact the bank's attorneys and ask that it be dismissed as to you.
I moved out 3 years ago and my ex still lives in the house.

No, you cannot be coerced by a foreclosure court or probably any other judge to sign off on any of the types of consensual agreements that you list. Probably the more important question is about what you hope to accomplish by your refusals....Read more »

You need to get it sold before the foreclosure sale, and a lawyer can often get the bank to wait for a sale. If the mortgage is greater than the sale price, it is called a short sale, and that is also possible. You need to move on it responsibly now, but you do not need bank consent unless they...Read more »

There is a special notice of appearance for foreclosures. I charge $500 to file it and monitor the case. It gives you notice of all proceedings, and any surplus issues. You do not owe anything. You are being named as an heir, I assume. The papers will say.
