Renting as a new freelancer...

Hi all, hoping for some advice if any can help.

My landlady has suddenly announced she is selling the house I live in (totally unexpected and infuriating!), and I'm getting backlash from letting agencies over only having been freelance for a year (even from the agency I'm currently with, who have a record that I've paid the rent on time and kept the house well etc.). Am terrified I won't find somewhere in time and could end up in some sort of bonkers squatting situation (or, worse, having to give up my cats - disaster!).
Does anyone have any experience of this sort of issue? Any advice would be so gratefully received.
Thank you thank you in advance,
