Once the lease expires without renewal, the landlord can give notice of new terms if you choose to stay in the property. If the terms are too onerous, then you have the option to vacate and go elsewhere. But yes, she has the right to dictate new terms if you choose to stay. You can try to negotiate limits to her access into your lives as a tenant, requiring access only at certain times and for certain reasons, if that is what would make things more palatable. The lease document is the key. With it you have guidelines, obligations, and restrictions. Without it you are at the landlord's mercy, subject to any state laws that might apply.
