I don't understand your question at all. It seems that you are upset, but that is not helping us as attorneys with the Lawguru network to understand you.

A lender is the one who forecloses. A trustee's deed usually refers to a trustee's deed upon sale which the foreclosing lender or highest bidder gets at the foreclosure sale.

I can't understand who foreclosed, who you paid rent to, and what the neighbors had to do with anything. Is it possible you are talking about a tax foreclosure sale?

I agree with Anthony that you apear not to uderstand the documents, or thier impact. Unfortunately your description does not indicate what is in the actual chain of title, or what the documents you have actually do. I would suggest a preliminary title report be obtained to detrmine exactly what title says at this time.
