@Chris Sukala If this is a foreclosure auction with the county you will be receiving a Certificate of Title which should be sufficient to prove you are the new owners. I would first speak to the tenants after I am sure I am the new owner and ask them if they currently have a lease agreement. If they do have one I would honor the lease agreement and if they do not then I would either give them the option of signing a new one or vacating. Hope this helps.
If it's a forelosure you may have to honor the existing lease for the remainder of its terms , some states allow for 90 notice to amend
