A: That depends on how long you've lived there. I can better explain this in person. The landlord can't just sell the house and ask you to move. You have rights and there are formalities that must be followed. Feel free to reach out for a better explanation.

A: If there is any clause/section in the lease that allows our landlord to terminate the lease upon transfer of ownership with XX day notice to the tenant, etc, then the clause will control.

If none, assuming that your lease concerns a usual, non-regulated house (one family house, etc) and you have a term lease (2 year lease, etc), not a month-to-month tenancy, your lease term must stay effective even if the ownership of the house changes unless the lease says otherwise. The new owner will not be allowed to kick you out upon transfer of the ownership or unilaterally alter the terms and conditions of the existing lease.
