Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

Hi I mistakenly rented out a self-contained studio flat annexed to my house to a young lady. I have given her 28 days notice to leave the flat as I stated in the lodger agreement I didn’t want her to have any visitors, and she has a boyfriend over.
Also, I suspect there has been smoking at the premises, but I cannot prove it, and she strongly denies. She has claimed she was wrongfully given a lodger agreement instead of a tenancy as I advertised it as a studio flat with a separate entrance and is becoming quite difficult.
Although I did tell her if anyone asked she should say that we share the kitchen and say she is a lodger.
What am I liable for in this situation?
Pls honest help thanks!
