I’m betting that you are in a great spot. You won the bid. Period. In MD, I know of no such appeal process.
Of course, it depends on local regs. Where are you?
Why don’t you pick a number out of the air, and see if they go for it. Maybe $65k would make it worth your time? Or is it $75K?
Calm down and think about this for just a minute. If the lender truly could get the sale overturned, why would he even want to know how much to buy your bid. Sounds like he is full of crap.
Let’s just assume that there is a method for overturning a bid (even though it is unlikely). Who makes the decision? Wouldn’t be the sheriff - he just does what the courts instruct him to do. It would have to be a judge. I could see this one in court, “Yes, your honor, I am invoking the weak bladder defense.”
That attorney knows he is about to get in trouble with his boss for being late to the sale, and he’s going to yell, scream and try to intimidate you into going away. Keep your cool, don’t loose your temper and you stand to profit quite nicely.
I wish I was in your shoes.
