You don't say if you have a lease. If you do, read it. The new landlord generally is bound by the terms of the lease until the end of the term, unless there is a clause that gives the new landlord the right to terminate the lease sooner.
If it is a month-to-month tenancy, state law usually provides for a notice period. In New York, it is 30-days' written notice in New York City, and one month's notice (not required to be in writing) in the rest of the state. Generally, the notice has to coincide with the lease period. For example, if you pay rent by the calendar month, the termination notice has to be effective at the end of a calendar month.
