Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
The alleged new owner can't do anything at all until they get a formal eviction order from a judge that gives them legal possession of the property. If she bought it at an auction, she has legal ownership, but she has to evict you in order to get legal possession.
So she would have to give you a written 30 day notice to terminate your tenancy first, and then file a formal eviction in court, which takes another 3-4 weeks, before she could get a judgment and a writ that the sheriff would execute to force you to vacate.
Bot***** *****ne is she is looking at 2 months before she could force you off the land.
If this person shows up again, you can call the police or sheriff and they will inform her that she has to go through a legal eviction in court to be able to force you to leave.
