Hi thank you for your question.
In the tenancy comes to end then this becomes a periodic tenancy, the tenancy would still have the same rights as in their previous tenancy agreement. Unless the tenancy agrees you cannot increase the rent, therefore your best option would be to serve a section 21 notice on the tenancy and ask her to vacate the property once it expires, you would then to need apply to court for an order of possession and then get bailiffs if required to evict the tenant.
However due to the current situation with COVID-19 court hearings regarding eviction has been suspended for the next 3 months, it would only be once the courts allow a possession hearing to commence that you would be able to obtain a possession order and then evict the tenant. In this case however i would recommend that you keep the rent as it is and then once the situation changes you can the server the section 21 notice on her and ask her to leave.
I hope this answers your question, if so please provide rating and feedback.
