My lease is law!

As a tenant, what are my options when the landlord wants to break my lease?

I live in the top level of a split-level house. I signed my lease in August and it doesn't expire until July. My landlord recently sold the house, and with that, the lease. The new owners want to have us out by the end of April so they can move in. We weren't expecting this so soon and it's come as kind of a shock. I live in Provo, Utah so it's really hard to find a clean, moderately spacious apartment that allows cats in such short time and for so cheap. We pay $595 a month plus gas and electricity.
I just need to know if I should accept that I need to hurry and move or if there's something I can do to fight this. Or at least get compensated for having to move to most likely what will be a more expensive apartment.
