If you are not paying rent under a lease, then you may be evicted.  The landlord will be required to serve you with eviction papers and go through the judicial process to remove you.  You should try to contact your landlord.  I suggest calling the town hall, and asking the name and mailing addres of the owner of the property.  The you should try to get in touch.  if you cannot, then you can stay there till the owner does contact you about rent and so forth.
