Complaint: Sherry Waite rented me a house in San Diego county (that she owned) under the name of Shelby LLC that seemed to be an extraordinary rental. There was another small dwelling on the back side of the property which was also occupied by another tenant (which was also her tenant). Sherry Waite told me that the back tenants were u201cextremely private peopleu201d and u201cplease not approach them.u201d It turned out that the property (I rented) had been condemned (prior) and that she illegally re-rented it anyway. While occupying the property, I realized I was receiving unusually large electricity bills. I could not understand why they were so high. After hearing sounds in the floor (that sounded like scurrying) and my dog chasing those sounds, I called in an exterminator. He explained that not only were there large rats in the house but there was exposed wiring everywhere in the house and that he u201cwas legally obligated to call the cities inspectoru201d. The inspector told me that I u201chad no choice but to vacate the property because it was previously a condemned propertyu201d (due to the same defect). It was during THIS inspection that I was informed that there was an illegal split at my electric meter and that my electric service was u201cfeeding the back renters house.u201d I then approached the u201cback rentersu201d and asked them about the illegal electricity split that was feeding their house. They explained that Sherry Waite had rented them the property promising that u201call electric bills were being paid by her.u201d I was actually paying their electricity bills. Due to the inspector, I was forced to abandon the property or be fined u201cfor occupying it.u201d I sued her for the deposit plus the rent I had paid and won a default judgment (due to her not showing up). The then appealed the judgment and I was forced into court again. The judge upheld my prior judgment and awarded me extra damages. Upon driving by the same address later I realized that she had re-rented it again under the SAME EXACT CIRCUMSTANCES! She is a Scam Lord who will completely ruin the time you have to sue her. Please hear my cry to not rent from this woman!!!
