Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I’ve received a letter from my letting agency (not going to name them) saying that the guidelines and regulations have changed regarding my tenancy going to periodic.
I pay monthly so does not seem to make sense to me. Then it goes on to say I might, in the next few months, have to sign a 6 months tenancy and thereafter it will change back to monthly after that all because of this change.
I’m not happy with my landlord as I have been in the property for 2 years and have asked for work to be done (basic maintenance to the building such windows and damp which is up to him as the landlord) and nothing been done. Due to my circumstances though I’m stuck here for now.
Can they make me sign this 6 months agreement?
They have breached their side of the contract and it seems the law favours the landlord.
I’m stuck and would like advice as I have always paid my rent and due to my current position I would find it hard to move so I’m stuck in catch 22.
Any advice please would be much appreciated.
