Without having a written lease, you are a tenant at will.

 

According to Utah statute 78B-6-802 (1)((I) you are entitled to 15 days notice to vacate at the end of your monthly rent period. If you pay rent on the 1st of the month it's already too late to be terminated for the end of October. They'd have to give you notice at least 15 days prior to the end of November.

According to Utah statute 78B-6-805 that notice would have to be given to you in writing in any of the ways listed in the statute:

Utah statute 78B-6-804 allows a tenant (the person on the lease) to terminate the tenancy of an "undertenant" (you) in the same manner as the owner or landlord.

We cannot know what "trying to kick me out" means.  If the one that loves you wants you there, however, not much the one who hates you can do about it ... assuming the wanter is willing to stand up for you.  (The one who hates you is free to sue the one who loves you for breach of contract if the deal was that if one of 'em wanted you gone, they'd issue you a termination of tenancy notice.)

 

Personally, I wouldn't want to stay where I'm not wanted.  I wouldn't inform anyone of what they're required to do under the law.  If someone doesn't give you proper notice of termination and files an eviction action, I'd defend myself in court to see that the action is dismissed.  If the one who hates interferes with your tenancy, I'd first call the police and ask them to talk with the person about how the law requires they take the matter to court.  I'd also feel free to file a tenant's complaint in the relevant landlord tenant court to ask the court to tell the person to buzz/lay off.
