Implications of updating an old tenancy agreement

I was asked to sign a new tenancy agreement despite having a rolling arrangement with the landlady. One of the forms was a deposit holding form which was dated last year. A week later I was asked to sign a sevond form as the first had incorrect deposit holding company (just one of many admin errors by the letting company) I returned the form ( signed for delivery )which I annotated to say the deposit was paid to the landlady in 2014. Now the company are saying they have no record of the form yet it was signed for as received. I also havent been given a copy of the EPC Where do I stand with reference to these admin errors also the woman from the letting agency repeatedly tells me if I move out she could increase the rent substantially which is worrying. I've waited 14 years for landlady to redecorate and have been told I can do whatever I like to make it my home I have replaced carpet and underlay in hallway living room and bedroom, painted and decorated living room and bedroom and replaced two sofas can these costs be offset against any rent increase and what is %age yearly rent increase?...
