The 20-year-old lives with her partner in a shared house in Falmouth, Cornwall, but her landlord wants them out so the room can be rented to a single person, as the property is not advertised for families.

Keda is now terrified her young family is on the brink of becoming homeless as their eviction notice ends in just two weeks, reports CornwallLive.

...It’s completely turned my life upside down, my mental health has taken a huge impact due to this,... she told the outlet.

...I've seen so many I know go through this and I've also seen those who have more options than us being helped more which is really frustrating.

...I hate coming home to where I am now as being issued with an eviction notice a week before I gave birth has made it really uncomfortable in this house with the other tenants.

...My partner is also really worried about us as he works full time and tries everything to help us but he feels like we have been massively let down by the system....

With the council not obliged to find the family somewhere to live at this stage, Keda worries they could end up in temporary accommodation they are unable to afford.

...They (Cornwall Council) currently won’t do anything until we are in 56 days of relief which is only until our eviction date,... she added.

...They are constantly forcing us to go private and look elsewhere when it’s completely not an option for us.

...We can’t even get full homeless duty until our eviction and even then they could end up putting us into a hotel that will cost more than we can afford....

And with house prices soaring across the county, Keda says her family are struggling to find anywhere affordable to rent.

...It’s completely out our price range,... she said.

...They are asking for four weeks upfront on an £750 to £800 property and that’s not even a deposit and bills. We can’t even afford £500 and then bills right now as I’m on maternity leave till June next year)....
