You have entered into a contract with her which is signed and witnessed and legally binding.
Was there any statement to the condition of the property ie inventory and did you and the landlady inspect it before signing the contract ?
It does not bode well for future dealings with this landlady if she is not able to address your concerns sensibly and reassuringly. Renting property to tenants is a business and landlord’s should treat this as such. She cannot just change her mind once a contract is signed.
Did she put your deposit into a deposit scheme ? Did she issue you with a gas safety certificate and energy rating for the property which all landlords are now obliged to give you?
I sincerely hope this issue is resolved quickly for you.
