While I cannot give you legal advice in this forum, your question is difficult to follow. Your rights are governed by the written documents. I do not believe from what you have stated that "verbal stipulations" are going to mean anything here if that is your real question.

It is likely your relationship in this tenancy is a "subtenant". If so, a "tenant" has the right to evict a "subtenant", just as a "landlord" has the right to evict a "tenant".
You will need to consult with an attorney to ascertain your specific rights since Avvo isn't a substitute for getting your own attorney.
