There are ways of getting things and ways of having your lease terminated. First of all, it would have been better to call the LL and say "This problem has not been addressed in your lease. Could we have some terminology added to cover this?" Then the Landlord and you could have hashed out terms. To write an addedndum and hand it to the Landlord, is pushy at best. I think you can work it out if you use some people skills, but if you have been barnstorming them for the last year , they may not want to listen to your "input" any more. You are probably very correct in wanting everything spelled out, but you have to understand that Landlords are people too with human failings and egos. Older landlords especially are stuck in their ways and difficult to begin with, so you need to "HANDLE" them. I worked in an office once and they brought in a new hire. She was an absolutely brilliant person that could have been quite an asset to the company. Unfortunately - she last a very short time because she just didn't have the ability to communicate with other people without putting them on the defensive. You catch more flies with honey. As for you having to move out ... usually the lease will say that at the end of the term of the lease it reverts to a month to month tenancy. That is your out for the next month. Check your state laws, but most states require that the LL provides 30 days notice to terminate a tenancy and it must be equal to one month rent meaning that if the rent is due on the first your notice should be in your hands on the last day of the prior month. The only way that you could be made to move now is if in addition to the blank lease that they asked you to sign they gave you some kind of notice that this must be signed and returned by xx/xx/01 or your current residency will expire on the last day of the current lease.
