Barstool, that is interesting. As I understand in Ky, you can use deadly force against someone trying to wrongfully displace you from your home. Not that I would in this case.
English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

I'd find out who's "administrative oversight" that was and make sure they lose their career at the very least.
Plus, it's pretty scary that the bank has the power there to just do this. Luckily, Florida places a huge value on a person's place of residence, much less their homestead.
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
Three million should about cover it, plus firing the guy that ordered the forecloser.
Strange story. Glad I can afford a good attorney if this happened to me.
Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.
When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

TAKING anyone's property without their consent, and without the legal authority to do so ... is "theft" ... period... and breaking into the house to do it... is "burglary" period.
Also... one heck of a lawsuit, not only for retrieval of any possesions and replacement of possessions, but all the agony and BS that it caused these people.
There is NO excuse for this type of thing. An "oooopss, we messed up.... uh... sorry.....ha, ha, ha... " .... doesn't cut it.

But back on topic, didn't a couple in FL recently foreclose on the bank after they tried this? They took possession of the branch and started moving furniture out while the manager locked himself in his office. I hope they win big. This is ridiculous.

Didn't have a mortgage, and a bank takes their home and possessions. When all's said and done, I'm betting they'll have leveraged their attorney's time to good effect. $100M, with half going to the community and half to the family, for the sheer effrontery of having done it. A few instances of this, and they'll begin to take more care to ensure there isn't a repeat. Without it, I'm sure it'll continue and be swept under the rug.
As for criminality, seems to me that it cannot be lawful for a bank to be doing such a thing without the specific physical involvement and presence of law enforcement ... for reasons of avoiding exactly this sort of thievery.
It sounds to me as if the house was a vacation retreat.
Still does not justify what happened.
Folks I know here in MI. who have lost their home to foreclosure, have then secured a rental home for their family, & while still in legal possesion of the original house, and while slowly moving things to the new place, have had crews find out when you aren't there at the old place, and they swoop in, change locks get a roll-off, clear out whatever they don't keep themselves and fill up roll-off and you are screwed.
They allegedly do this because in the past, the occupants who are losing the property are upset, and vandalize the place, so they(the banks) pull this tactic to save themselves the damage.
Banks are evil.
