I’m a little confused with regards to the elderly mother, is this the landlords elderly mother?

Is she giving you notice to leave the house or have I misunderstood something?

With UC you just need to let them what has happened and why ex’s name is still on the tenancy, you should be fine.

I was in a similar position, there was a bit of tooing and froing with UC but I asked for it to be taken to the decision makers. The decision was that even tho my ex would not take his name off of the tenancy they still regarded me as a single person living there with my son. They did say they might send someone to make sure he wasn’t living with me which would have been fine with me but they never did. You should be okay, your def not the first person to be in this position.
