1991 Landlord Hall of Shame

Record #:
The Independent conducted a two-month study of the conditions of rental properties and landlords in the Triangle Area by reviewing the housing-code violations filed on properties. Four area landlords were profiled. Jacqui Pearce is described as an understanding landlord and is highlighted for her positive relationship with tenants. Worth Gurley, Wade Watkins, and David Wilkes are profiled for their numerous housing-code violations and their properties rented to tenants that are labeled “unfit for human habitation.”
