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

I split up with my wife August 2013. She gave notice on our rented property in April 2014 bit didn’t tell me. The housing association had a meeting with me and told me I had to leave in 4weeks and would be seeking a possession order and I would receive everything in writing. All I received was a rather informal letter from them and no possession order so far. I am due to leave in a weeks time.
Would it be beneficial to me to stay put?
How long do possession orders take?
Also can the housing association claim back costs and how much are they likely to be?
I feel rather aggrieved as despite being under the impression I was a named tenant but my wife never added me despite living there altogether for 4 years. Also I continued to pay her the rent to her but she stopped passing this money on to the housing association in January without my knowledge which would indicate why she quit the property.
