After a tenant moves out, the landlord does not have a duty to store the tenant’s property. Landlord has to make the property available to the tenant for a “reasonable “ amount of time (maybe a few days), then the property is treated as abandoned by the tenant and can be disposed of.
When a rental property is sold and there is a written lease for a term already in place on that property, the new owner takes the property subject to the lease. So your lease would still be in place, provided it is in writing.
If the summons was posted then that is good service for entry of a judgment against you for possession, but not for money damages. If service was truly invalid then you can hire an attorney and file motion for relief from void judgment and a stay of execution.

You did not ask a specific question but I’ll address your post. If you are subject to a written lease then the lease terms control, not the landlord’s unilateral attempts to change the terms. But if the lease states payment is due the first then it’s due the first each month.
There is no way to answer this question without more information. If you are a month-to-month tenant, you are entitled to one month's notice. If you are not paying rent, there is a shorter notice required.
