If my landlord is selling the property, what rights do I have as a tenant?

Question Details: I signed a 3 year lease with a private owner. I've now been told that they're selling the house. I have 1 1/2 years to go on the lease. I'm a single mother and working on my credit score, hence the reasoning behind a long term lease agreement. Do I have tenant rights? Am I able to continue my lease or be able to get a buyout as the move would be a financial hardship and difficult to move with my credit.
