It sounds very much like the landlord wants to remove you so they can maybe sell the property, and attract a better price for it being vacant as opposed to with a tenant in it.
well its interesting, OMIC says that for the last few years they dont handle piso complaints, its directed towards the babitage place, then to top this whole fiasco off they say its legal that a agency tells you this junk, whats not legal is evicting you over it, thats determined in court, if they dare to take it that far, also they own a building not a piso and the office where i got my padron say the owner cant sell just one piso cuase she owns the whole building, its a huge corner of a street, 3 buildings actually, very big old building, large 6 room pisos, they said also they cant seal the piso off to evict anyone since its also the building, but all this did not sound right to a lawyer i know from the UK, he says it sounds like they bable in Spain and no one knows until things get to court, he spoke to a lawyer girlfriend in the past while visiting Barcelona last year and said landlords like mine are sneaky, they know laws very well and try to play their cards, for example everyone in Spain is confused about what subletting a piso as to renting a room to someone is, most owners would love everyone to believe that renting a room out is subletting the property with out the owners permission but there are details, depending on the contract and owners yet almost everyone claims its all illegal, even when owners agree to it, because they want tenants to think this before going all the way to court to find out the judge will decide to let it go just this once and ask the tenant to get permission the next time, or even get to court and the tenant already remove the subtenant so the case is dismissed., just an example, we dont have rooms to let with 3 kids, but things like this are vague from what everyone tells me.
And you guys are seriously correct to ask about real contract, many do buy some at a tabac and the padron office registers it
