I would just mow it, not too short so you don't scalp the humps and bumps, and keep mowing regularly once a week while it continues to grow ... that will encourage the grass and discourage weeds and use a lawn rake to rake out thatch and moss ... then next spring you can take a look at it, show us a photo or three and we'll see what your options are .. there are several techniques for ironing out the bumps and hollows
I've created some quite good general purpose lawns from what were considered by some to be horrendous messes, just by regular mowing and removal of any moss.
And some low growing wildflowers in a lawn can be an attraction, and certain are good for pollinators.
There's little point in spending a lot of money to create a perfect lawn for a property where you may not be staying long term.
