Mtg co to pay taxes sent wrong check to tax bureau my house was foreclosed on didn’t even know till someone came to say they bought it.

Do I have nany recourse. They did 0pay some of the $ but not all. They admit some fault and have offered me a small settlwement of 20,000 but house worth 130,000 equity pd into it 60,,000 I knew I owed $ so I took appropriate measures to have this taken care of. They insist I am two blame. Should I go to court or settle for such a small amt of what I put into it.
