If a landlord bought property over a year ago and didn’t enforce a new lease or increase the rent amount at that time, can they do so now?

Now that I been month-to-month for 5 months now they want me to resign a lease under them. The rent will be for a higher amount. If I don’t sign the lease I have 60 days to get out. Is this a legal? And weren’t they supposed to enforce they lease if they bought the property with all new terms?
