You have a month to month. Whether with the old owner or the new owner...
In New Jersey, a new landlord cannot evict a tenant simply because he has purchased the building from the property owner who engaged the tenancy.

For all legal advice seek an attorney But this is the NJ Tenancy law... javascript:{}

Now do the same laws apply if the landlord that I made the agreement sold the house now the new landlord that purchased the house wants me out in less than a week without a written notice?

You are in Plainfield NJ?

In New Jersey, landlords can enter into month-to-month tenancy agreements with their tenants through both oral and written agreements. Landlords must provide monthly tenants with the same rights as year-to-year tenants have. Furthermore, landlords owe the same duty of habitability to provide safe and clean housing for their monthly tenants.

To terminate a monthly lease, landlords and tenants must provide each other with written notice to terminate the lease to prevent automatic renewal of another month's lease agreement. Each party must provide at least one month written notice of intent not to renew before the month begins. For example, tenants who pay rent by the first of each month must provide written notice to the landlord by July 1 if the tenant wants to move out by July 31. If the tenant does not provide the notice by July 1, then the tenant must pay rent for August.

Because laws vary from state to state, the best person to talk to would be an attorney.
Most attorneys will give you a free consultation regarding your issue. If you cannot find a local attorney that practices in the real estate field (highly unlikely), every county has a free lawyer referral service that offers free legal counseling. Check with the county seat and they will have that available in the clerks office.
Wishing you luck.

More important to know if the landlord can not force you out of the property! Only the Sherriff can do that. I know that for sure takes place in Florida and NJ.Good luck with your situation.
