Tax Deed auction in PA

Hi, we have a tax deed auction coming up in PA, with over 1500 properties on it. I've been doing a lot of research and still have some questions for those who have done this before.

1) If a property has a long driveway and you can't see the house from the road, is it legal to drive up the driveway to the house? Would you drive in the driveway and turn around again, or talk to the property owner for any reason? I would like to at least see that the house is there and the roof is not caved in, etc. I can't imagine that the current occupant would be happy to talk to me about their property.

2) How do you research other liens that may be on the property, besides the tax lien?

3) If the occupant is still living there, how do you evict them?

4) How long do you need to wait in PA before you can quiet the title, and sell the property to a buyer with traditional financing?

5) Would you change the locks immediately? What if you can't tell if the home is currently occupied? How do you gain access to the house without the keys?

Thank you for any help, I appreciate it!
