If you have a tenancy agreement, then the landlord must serve you the correct paperwork notice to leave the property. Until such formal documents have been served, then no notice has been served.
Under current covid19 law, a minimum 6 months notice must be served by the landlord to take back possession of property. That 6 months notice starts once the former paperwork has been served. After the 6 months, if you still remain in the property, the landlord would then have to apply to the court for possession, if granted, you would be give a date by the court to leave. If you then still remain, the landlord would then have to ask the court for eviction. Once that is served then you have 14 days to leave before bailiff comes in. So until the landlord serves the paperwork, you have nothing to worry about. Once he does that, then six months notice must be given. So if that happened today, you would have until mid April. Then he would need to go to court. So realistically you would have until possibly next May/June or even later.
