Dear Wilkes Barre tenant:
I am an attorney licensed to practice in New York. I do not practice law in Pennsylvania.
You seem terribly reasonable perhaps to your own detriment. Basement apartments are not often legal for dwelling purposes, so you absolutely must have the basement apartment inspected for toxicity and legality.
You may have special rights as a person with a disability to a special accommodation by your landlord. Those rights first flow from federal law and most states have adapted their own versions of laws that require landlords to provide reasonable accommodations in housing to persons with special needs.
Your landlord at a minimum must provide a proper notice pursuant to state law. In essence she is terminating the two year lease you made in December illegally. The illegal termination of the two year lease that helped them save the farm is also possibly mortgage fraud. You were important to the owners when useful but they do not consider that you are needed much any more.
You will need an attorney to protect your tenancy rights and your two year lease.
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
I don't practice in your state , but from what you have said a move would have to be voluntary. You should ask her why you should move and what concessions will they make ? lower rent for example. Otherwise your lease sounds as if it describes your existing unit and not the basement.

You absolutely are not required to move out, or into the basement, of the property which you are leasing. Your landlord cannot force you out of your apartment so that it may be leased to somebody else, this is essentially an eviction and there are judicial procedures for such.
