Your rights are governed by the lease and typically, a well drafted lease will have conditions concerning this.
It is his property and he has the right to sell it. If it is not specific in the lease, at the very least they will have to give you reasonable advance notice so that you can prepare.
If you are wondering whether there are any statutes on this issue, I do not believe there are any.
I suggest you review the lease first.
