You made the least-bad choice.

Trying to "go legal" on your landlady would have made her your enemy. And it would have made YOU a person no landlord would want to rent to. Very soon you will be trying to rent another room, and when they ask where you've been living for the last two years, you can list her as a reference. Consider the alternative.
