What are a a tenants rights if their landlord dies?

Question Details:

Been renting house 4 years and now landlord has passed away. We have never had a lease in place.  A lady claiming to be the sister mailed us and said we need to pay rent to her. We have not gotten any legal documentation instructing us to do this. She is now harassing us by banging on the door. We don't know her and won't pay rent to a stranger. I called her 3 months ago and asked if she was the executor and she said not yet. I said at such time we will then pay if we are required. We are moving 09/30 but she is now disturbing us. What rights do we have? When are we forced to move?
