What to do if I live in an owner-occupied building and they are selling and asked me to relocate?

I’m trying to figure out if my lease gives me more than 45 days notice to quit?

Notice to quit is usually only given when you don't pay. In New Jersey I believe in circumstances like yours, 3 months notice is sufficient.  Further, the landlord currently cannot interfere with your leasehold if you are complying with lease terms. You may wish to consult your local consumer protection agency on the specifics but I believe it is at least 3 months' notice or you get to stay for the remainder of the lease term unless the new owner requests that you move, as well.
