"The forms were definitely with them before the end of the year but the penalty rent was never dropped and that has been added on, week on week," she said.
"I've tried to reason with them, but they've done absolutely nothing to change it. For the moment, I'm in limbo and it'll be a disaster (if evicted). I've a son in school here and my work is here, too. All I can do now is wait and see but I've had absolutely nothing off them (regarding negotiating the penalties) about something I shouldn't have to pay," she added. The review of circumstances is used as a way of calculating the next year's rent, which can be reviewed upwards or downwards depending on earnings, who is living in the house and various other factors.

The parents of a man, beaten to death in County Monaghan four years, have said they remain hopeful his killers will be brought to justice.
Stephen and Breege Quinn were speaking on the anniversary of their son Paul's murder.
Last week, hundreds of people attended a mass in memory of the 21-year-old in his hometown of Cullyhanna in south Armagh.
Paul Quinn was savagely attacked by a gang of masked men after being lured to a farm in Tullycora, near the village of Oram in 2007.
His parents say they still believe people living locally "know all about" Paul's murder and have called on them to go to the gardaí or the PSNI to "get it off their chest".
