That really depends on who bought it but you should really be moving out ASAP because since you just lost your home at an auction chances are you aren't going to be able to buy a home for a while and you will need to rent for quite some time and the last thing that you want on your record on top of everything else is an eviction.

The "Certificate of Title" is issued 10 days after the auction. It's possible the new owner will rent to you but don't count on getting low rent, you will probably pay ABOVE market rents. The owner may simply want to "flip" the property and he/she may even offer you a few hundred dollars to vacate. If you don't move, he/she will probably immediately hire the sherrifs to remove you after the eviction is done--it's fairly quick in Tampa.
