Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I have been sub-renting a bedroom since February 2013. The couple who is sub-renting me the room have received a court order to evacuate the property on the 29th of July 2014. However, they only told me this on 25th of July at 11pm.
I had a contract with them which was running for a month, but we didn’t renew it last year. I’ve been paying my rent on a monthly basis and gave them a 1 month deposit when I moved in.
It is very difficult for me to pack, look for a new bedroom and move out with a such a short notice. I also work from Mon-Fri and it’s too late for me to ask for a day off at my office.
Could you please tell me what are my options to postpone the eviction? I don’t even have the real landlord’s contact details.
What will happen if I’m still in the house after the 29th of July? I just need an extra week to be able to move out on the 2nd of August.
Thanks for your help.
