my daughter is renting a house where she has 1 1/2 years left on the lease. The person she was renting from passed away and now his son is telling her he is putting the house up for sale and wants in it on Monday to take pictures to post to post to sell. What are her rigths about having to move out? she has 7 children and 1 on the way and no one will rent to her with that many children.

As long as she continues to pay rent and follow her obligations under the lease, the lease will survive the sale and she cannot be forced out during the term of the lease. Now, once the lease ends, she can be asked to leave with appropriate notice. Unfortunately, as a renter, there is no way to guarantee a long term living arrangement anywhere.
She has to give access to the son with proper notice to enter the home, but she does not need to leave. She needs to keep a copy of her lease and make sure she pays rent on time every month. Expect that if she is late in rent, they will probably move to evict her quickly.
