The government knows that tenants can't go through legal hoops, so the rental court is set up so you don't need a lawyer. If the landlord is using a lawyer, they may be just trying to intimidate you.
The landlord can ask you to leave, but if you do not believe that the reasons are valid you can simply refuse to move out, which forces the landlord to set up a court hearing to get an order to remove you, the tenant would be invited to defend themself at this hearing. Alternatively you can go to the rental court and ask for a hearing, most places it only cost about 20$. If the landlord has not sent you previous letters then their actions now are clearly unreasonable, and they will have much difficulty arguing their side of this.
