I never heard of an illegal foreclosure, but if it was done procedurally incorrect then it may be able to be over turned.

No you can definitely file a lawsuit for wrongful foreclosure and probably 8 or 9 other causes of action.

I'm not sure if there is an "illegal" foreclosure unless the mortgage company did not follow the correct procedures at court to foreclose on the home. To make it legal, they also must show that they own the note that shows the obligation owed on the home.

Yes, there can be circumstances where a foreclosure sale was not conducted within the law. You may have a cause of action, but if an innocent, third-party buyer bought at foreclosure, you won't be able to recover the property itself.
