Terrible time with council tenant and shock at how law treats landlords15:32 PM, 9th January 2019

After owning and letting a Leasehold flat for around 20 years the freehold changed hands a few months ago.
I have now received a letter informing me that letting the flat breaks a clause in the lease that says the flat must be used by either the Leaseholder or a member of the leaseholders family and offering me the chance to regularise the situation by either evicting the tenant (of 8 years standing) or paying to have the terms of the Lease amended.
The previous freeholder was always aware that the flat was tenanted and was happy for it to be let.
Has anyone experience of this situation or advice about how to proceed.
