The landlord cannot ask you to leave just with a text and must give you 42 days notice if this is for his family, and 90 days notice otherwise. If he hasn't given you this much notice, then his notice to vacate is not valid. You should tell him that his notice is wrong and that you will take him to the tenancy Tribunal if he tries to make you leave.
