    10 years. She has no title or color of title, so she has to be there 10 years before she could begin to gain actual ownership. Almost impossible to gain adverse possession. Has to make sure the taxes are paid (the fact that it hasn't been auctioned off yet should tell you that someone already is and therefore there is an owner who cares) or it can be auctioned off prior to the 10 years coming up.

    She would have to live there without permission and pay all the property taxes for 25 years. She would likely get arrested for trespassing way before the 25 years are up.
