Lease question...My wife's business signed a 5-year lease

Lease question...My wife's business signed a 5-year lease five years ago in March. In May, the landlord "spoke" with my wife about renewal. There were no terms discussed. None regarding length of a renewal nor dollar figures. Nothing written was presented. The landlord asked if they intended to renew. My wife's response was "we don't plan on going anywhere any time soon." Her response was NOT "oh yes, we will be here for five more years." Now the landlord says the lease renewed "without notice", however she says "terms have changed" yet my wife had NO verbal confirmation of any changes let alone any written/signed contract. How is "we don't plan on going anywhere any time soon" binding with NO terms etc? Any help appreciated!!

Two weeks ago, I received a phone call! I didn't answer, and

Two weeks ago, I received a phone call! I didn't answer, and the person left a message! I remember, it was a toll free number! Actually I thought it was a telemarketer phone call, as it happened often every day! Later I I checked this message, and the person was saying that "I have been served"! A few days later, Someone knocked at my door two times, first on the daytime, and the second time, late at night! Basically they don't have any ways to know that I was aware of the message left on my phone, since I basically never checked my messages! I found a bit strange to receive phone message that such a an important matter! I would like to know what could happen if I keep on avoiding them?Thanks
