It depends, how long have you been renting, what does your contract say ?
If you speak Dutch and/or French, check out http://www.belgium.be/nl/huisvesting/huren_en_verhuren/huurovereenkomst/... or http://www.belgium.be/fr/logement/location/bail/duree_et_fin_du_bail/res...

Just saying "it ends in six months" when you have NOT lived in the place for at least six years is not valid.

You may be able to get 18 months rent of of this ;-)

OTOH, if the house DOES get sold, and the new owners want to live in it, it only takes them 6 months to get you out of there.. so your landlord is probably trying to get you to quit so he has a higher resale value (if a property is still rented out, it usually sells for less)
