Shanekwa Alderson or Shanekwa Tyequona or Shanekwa Warren Ripping off Landlord St. Petersburg Florida
I, in good faith, rented a single family home to Shanekwa Alderson, who is also known as Shanekwa Warren and Shanekwa Tyequona, on October 1st, with a move-in date of October 18th once first, last and security were paid. I did research and found a record of battery that had been "closed" and spoke with her employer. The tenant asked if she could pay a portion of the security with the November rent which I agreed to.
I advised tenant that the rent was due on the first of the month and if not paid on time and it not an eviction notice would be posted. The tenant had no furniture in the main part of the house, making it look like it was vacant. When November rent was due it was not paid and I contacted her several times before her husband, who she was not living with agreed to meet with me and give me a portion of the rent. I again agreed to wait until November 15th for the balance of the rent. I had to go to the house to collect rent as she did not have a vehicle which I was not aware of. She apologized for the late payment and advised going forward she would set up paycheck to automatically pay me.
She told me she saw someone around the house and was concerned as she had young children - she advised that a family member told her that the house did not look lived in. I brought down and area rug, a chair, table and lamp to put in the living room until furniture she said was being delivered in January arrived.
When December rent came due she asked if I would pay for ADT Security and I advised she would need to check out cost. I offered to put up motion lights. She did not pay December rent and when I put notice on her door she indicated I could pick up rent at her place of employment - when I arrived at her work she was not there and I waited for 30 minutes and when she arrived she did not meet me to take care of rent.
I reached out to her many times in both phone and text messages and she started getting real nasty in her return texts.
I proceeded with the eviction - when the sheriff gave notice and met with me to take possession the house was filled with trash and used tampons left on the floor as well as dirty diapers. The water had been turned off since Dec. 18th and both the toilet and kitchen sink were filled with standing water and feces and the house smelled. There was five large trash bags of debris left behind. There was gum and paper stuck to the hardwood floors and rotting food in the refrigerator.
Do not rent to this woman as she is not who she pretends to be once the lease is signed.
Unfortunately, my generosity and trying to work with her back fired.
