Wa `alaykum as-salamu wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
In this fatwa:
In his response to your question, Prof. Dr. Monzer Kahf, Professor of Islamic Finance and Economics at Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies, states:
Buying foreclosure is permissible. The bank is not the owner but rather the creditor who is permitted by court to sell in order to collect its debt.
According to the Shari`ah, the trust and you are the same therefore creating a trust and making this transfer does not change a thing but the company ijarah/loan which tricks you into this takes some fees for this fraud.
They claim that under Canadian law the trust and you are not the same but this does not apply in the Shari`ah.
Allah Almighty knows best.
