I’m sorry to say that as a lodger, even paying rent, she only has to give you one month notice. Surprisingly, it doesn’t even have to be in writing.
It gets worse:
if you don’t leave, she can actually lock you out provided she gives you your belongings back. She doesn’t even need a court order.
You may have a financial claim on the property in respect of the money you have been paying if that contributed towards the fabric of the property but it doesn’t give you the right to stay longer than the one month notice.
I am sorry, I know it’s not the answer you wanted.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
