Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
1. Is the agreement an assured shorthold tenancy agreement
2. Have you received a s21 Housing Act notice requiring possession
I'm afraid if you have been served with a valid s21 noticie requiring possession at the end of the fixed term then you will have to leave the propertry is you are not willing to take a tenancy based on their new terms.
They are permitted to offer the terms they see fit, your period of occupation does not afford you any rights in regard to preferential renewal but you remain free to either accept or reject the terms. That is your prerogative.
If you stay in the property after the fixed term then they will apply to court for an order for possession and sue you for the rent you should have paid until you are evicted aswell as their costs.
Sorry it could not be better news.

Having read the exchange I'm afraid my advice still stands. That correspondence is technically a negotiation only. There is not a sufficient offer there which you could claim was concluded by any acceptance by you unfortunately.
Sorry it could not be better news. I trust this clarifies and should be grateful if you would kindly click accept.
