All you can do at this point is either:

1. Have the matter relisted in court. Send the court a letter asking for it to be relisted and explain the delay.


2. Speak with the agent and come to some agreement.

At this point, they have a court made judgement so in that, they can force you to move out. So failing either option above being successful, you need to move out sadly.
