    Such cases have been reported on here, but the maximum any extension can extend the possession date to is 6 weeks. So if 14 days was already given, the max extension will be 4 weeks. If 6 weeks was already given, then the judge will be unable to extend it further.

    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1980/51/section/89
    (1)Where a court makes an order for the possession of any land in a case not falling within the exceptions mentioned in subsection (2) below, the giving up of possession shall not be postponed (whether by the order or any variation, suspension or stay of execution) to a date later than fourteen days after the making of the order, unless it appears to the court that exceptional hardship would be caused by requiring possession to be given up by that date; and shall not in any event be postponed to a date later than six weeks after the making of the order.

    IIRC from your other post, you are trying to avoid eviction over Christmas - take a read of this... http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...ty-for-4-weeks
