It should clearly state when you need to vacate the property ..... Also once the property was put on the market for sale, did you not know about that fact and double checked your options with the owner/landlord at that time...
I am just wondering, lease agreement should very much spill those details out, but they could be very different from property to property.... Have someone in your area, preferably an experienced attorney look at your rental/lease agreement....
Good Luck to you!

Please realize that non-locals also invest in properties in SF. The ones who actually OWN income properties in SF probably could speak with more authority--based upon their own experience--than locals who don't own income properties in SF.
Similarly, some investors based in SF also invest in non-local markets.
Some agents/investors opt to operate locally; others (myself included) prefer to operate in multiple markets. Choose wisely.
you might want to look into your renters rights.
It appears you have knowledge this has been happening for awhile so I take it you have been notified somehow.
Perhaps you can contact your landlord be it old or new, and work it out. ( they may buy you out of your lease )
Perhaps you can move out when your lease expires.
Legal advice from an attorney who you can give a much more clear questions and answers might help as well.

Rich is correct, you should definitely consult with an attorney and contact the rent board for additional information. FYI, the buyers cannot give you notice until the property has actually closed and they are on title as the new owners.
Best of luck.
You should consult a qualified attorney or the SF Rent Board regarding your questions. Realtor's should not be advising you on issues like these (this helps assure you're getting the correct and most up to date information).
Best of luck.
