6. You may be able to petition the Court to set aside the sale if the bid price was grossly inadequate compared to the value of your property.

A schedule of distribution of the money bid for your house will be filed by the Sheriff no later than thirty days after the Sheriff Sale. This schedule will state who will be receiving the money.
