Tell her she cannot just tell you to get out. She must go to court to get an eviction order first. You can refuse to move if she does not have a court order. Go to the police if they threaten you with violence or inflict violence. Finally take your case to the Rental and Housing Tribunal in your area. You can find their contact detail online. All actions will be put on hold until they have helped resolved the dispute between landlord and tenant. All the best.
