Young mother Tomeeka Tomlinson has been denied a rental home 280 TIMES after being left with nothing

A young mother has been left desperately searching for a new home after becoming ‘stranded’ when her partner was killed in a crash.

Tomeeka Tomlinson was 16 weeks pregnant when she was left with no house and no transport following the death of her partner from a motorbike accident in June last year.

The 19-year-old soon had to find a new home and began the arduous journey of applying for a rental across Brisbane, Queensland.

She has called Queensland’s rental crisis ‘shocking’ and claims she’s been rejected from 280 rental properties so far.

Tomlinson told the Courier Mail she ‘started looking for rentals’ eight months ago but was ‘continuously knocked back’.

‘I have applied for over 280 houses around Redbank Plains, Redbank, Goodna, Augustine Heights, Springfield, Riverview, Yamanto, Brassall and so many more including [National Rental Affordability Scheme] NRAS applications,’ she revealed.

Tomlinson currently lives at her overcrowded family home with her young son, now six-months-old, as she continues sending out applications.
