Hello - What do you mean removed you from the tenancy?
Whether they are able to do this or not depends on whether the tenancy had come to an end and whether your ex gave notice or not because there is nothing to stop the X giving one-month notice on behalf of both of you and the tenancy coming to an end and the landlord giving a new tenancy agreement to your ex as the new tenant on her own.
She cannot remove you from it until it has come to an end. You are still entitled to occupy the property under the terms of the old tenancy agreement.
If she won’t give you a key, you are entitled to apply to court to ask the court order her to give you access and you can ask the court to award legal costs against her.
The threat of that action coming from a solicitor may focus her mind.
Do bear in mind that it would only be a short-term solution for the reasons I stated earlier.
Can I clarify anything else for you?

You have not been removed from the tenancy. You are still on the tenancy. The old tenancy is still effective.
To be honest, if the landlord has offered you £2000, I would take it because it’s unlikely you’re going to get more than that if it went to court and it could take several months.
