If the property is in Brooklyn, perhaps something happened with the owner's situation since Hurricane Sandy, hence the need to sell. The bottom line is that you have rights as a tenant and as described in your lease. They cannot just throw you out of the house. Your best bet would be to speak to a landlord tenant attorney and show them a copy of your lease to find out your rights. Even if you have to pay some money to do that, it is well worth it to know your rights. Good luck!
