Hello. Thank you for contacting me. I am a consultant here and I am looking forward to assisting you with your question. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Please be patient as I will be typing my responses to you from scratch.

Whoever the landlord sells to will have to honor the lease or give you cash as an incentive for you to move. Just because the landlord sells doesn't mean your lease is invalidated.

The landlord doesn't have a buyer yet. He wants permission from us to show the house. I have a handicapped brother and my parents recently moved in because my dad is ill. Also does the landlord have obligation to pay us for the expense of moving?

You must give him permission to show the property. You cannot prevent him from doing so.

Not if you stay for the duration of the lease, no.
