If you have a lease for a set term, you're legally allowed to stay until the end of the term. They cannot require you to leave early. You can encourage them to pay you well to break the lease if they want you out, but you don't have to. A tenant cannot be made to stay solely because the property is sold if their lease isn't ending.
For a month-to-month lease, they only need to give you one month's notice to vacate. Since you know they're planning to sell, if you have a month-to-month lease, it could help to start looking for a new place before you get that notice, since you could also give them one month's notice that you're leaving.
