IN DECEMBER 2009, I RECENTLY SEARCHED CRAIG'S LIST TO FIND

RESIDENCY AND RAN ACROSS THIS AD. $300 DEPOSIT GET REST OF
DECEMBER'S RENT FREE."NEWLY RENOVATED 2 BDR APT $500.00 A MONTH WASHER N DRYER INCLUDED". NOTE:  12-14-2009
IT WAS WITHIN MY BUDGET AND NOT MY FAV PART OF JACKSON. I
GOOGLED IT FOR DIRECTIONS, THEN PROCEEDED TO DRIVE THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD AT NIGHT TO

GET A BETTER VISUAL. TO MY SATISFACTION THE POLICE PRESENCE AND BURGLAR BARS ON THE APT MADE IT "A NICE DEAL"
I CALLED THE NUMBER LISTED ON CRAIG'S LIST AND MET THE OWNER,
MS. SHENARA ANTHONY, SHE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND SEEMED AT THAT
TIME HONEST AND VERY SINCERE. BUT HAD A SMILE SO AMINATED SHE LOOK LIKE A HOWDIE DOODIE DOLL. VERY SCARY!!! 
12-21-2009

I MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO GO OVER TO VIEW THE INSIDE OF THE "NEW
RENOVATED APTS", AND TAKE HER UP ON THE NO RENT FOR DEC. [continued below]....

..... "$300
DEPOSIT MOVE-IN SPECIAL"!
PAY DEP., SIGN THE LEASE, AND RECIEVE MY KEYS, AND BEGIN MY LONG AWAITING MOVE..."
[12-22-2009]SHE INFORMED ME THAT THE POWER TO THE APARTMENT WASN'T TURNED ON
DUE TO THE BUILDING BEING VACANT FOR SO LONG, AND IT WAS THE
TENANTS RESPONSIILITY TO CONTACT ENTERGY FOR ELECTRICAL UTILITIES.
SHE INFORMED ME THAT ABSOLUTELY NO APPLIANCES WOULD BE INSTALLED UNTIL UNITS WERE RENTED
BY TENANTS. SHE INFORMED ME THAT EACH TENANT IN THE QUAD PLEX ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR
ELECTRICITY AND WATER UTILITIES. THIS WAS STANDARD SO I AGREED.
SHE NEEDED A COPY OF MY ID, PROOF OF INCOME, AND A $30
APPLICATION FEE WITH THE $300.00 SPECIFIED IN AD DEC'S RENT
SPECIAL...ON CRAIG'S LIST.
I SUPPLIED HER A COPY OF ALL ITEMS LISTED ABOVE TO INIATE THE
APARTMENT RENTAL / CRIMINAL BACK GROUND CHECK APPROVAL PROCESS. ALONG WITH MY $30 APPLICATION FEE.

I FELT TO MY BEST INTEREST TO ASK FOR A COPY OF HER ID. JUST TO
ENSURE I WASN'T BEING SCAMMED.

MY GUT FEELING TOLD ME "THIS SETUP ISN'T HOW, A PROFESSIONAL
LANDLORD, OR EVEN A AMATEUR LEASING AGENT, SUPPOSED TO RENT OUT AN APARTMENT...IT'S COLD, DARK, AND RAINING THAT NIGHT, THE APT WAS AND IS  CLEARLY VACANT AND NOONE LIVING THERE CURRENTLY!
WHEN I MET HER TO VIEW THE APARTMENT,

THE VERY NEXT DAY SHE INFORMED ME I HAD BEEN APPROVED AND I MET
HER OVER TO THE APARTMENT TO RECIEVE THE KEYS. AND WAS TOLD I
COULD START MOVING AND LIVING IN MY NEW APARTMENT.
I ONLY MOVED MY FURNITURE, CLOTHES, TV'S LAMPS ETC... INTO THE APT BUT DIDNT PHYSICALLY

MOVE IN MYSELF, DUE TO NO ELECRICITY OR WATER IN OPERATION.
AND I PROMISED AFTER CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY I WOULD DRIVE MY NEPHEWS BACK HOME TO ATLANTA TO
START SCHOOL IN TIME.

BEFORE I LEFT, I WAS CALLED BY MISS ANTHONY ASKING DID I OR SOMEONE LIVING IN MY
APARTMENT LEAVE A CANDLE OR SUMTHIN LIT, BECAUSE IT WAS REPORTED TO HER "MY UNIT WAS
SMOKING"!
I CALLED 911 AFRAID FOR ALL MY THINGS, TO INFORM THEM OF THIS MATTER AND I LET HER KNOW
BECAUSE OF THE HEALTH RISK NO WATER OR ELECTRICITY I HADN'T ACTUALLY BEGAN LIVING IN THE UNIT. 911 RESPONDED AND TOLD ME THEY HAD JUST LEFT FROM THE BUILDING
AND THE FIRE HAD BEEN CONTAINED.
PROBABLE CAUSE AT THAT TIME UNKNOWN. MISS ANTHONY WAS TOLD
IMEDIATELY AND TOLD ME IT WAS A MAINTAINANCE MAN WORKING ON A
PROJECT UPGRADING THE HEAT/AIR CONDITIONING INSTALLATION
DOWNSTAIRS CAUSED THIS DAMAGE. (SEE FIRE DEPT'S RECORD FOR EXACT
DATE)
I REQUESTED SOMETHING BE DONE ABOUT THE SMOKE IN MY APT AND ASK
WAS THE PROPERTY SAFE. IT WAS TOLD ME THAT WASN'T GOING TO
HAPPEN AGAIN AND I SHOULDN'T WORRY, SHE WOULD DO ALL SHE COULD
TO ENSURE MY SAFETY AND THAT I WOULD BE COMFORTABLE.
AFTER CONTACTING ENTERGY FOR MY ELECTRICITY I WAS NOTIFIED THAT
THE LIGHTS WERE ON AND NEEDED TO BE TRANSFERED TO MY NAME. BY
MISS ANTHONY, NOT TRUE.
ENTERGY IN FACT CAME OUT AND HAD TO REPLACE WIRES CONNECTED TO
THE BUILDING, AND REPORTED THE BUILDING ITSELF HAD WIRING ISSUES
NOT REGULATED BY THE STATE OR ENTERGY.
EXAMPLE. SLOT FOR METER #1-APT B ACTUALLY CUTS ON APT-C
         SLOT FOR METER #2-APT A ACTUALLY CUTS ON APT-B...ETC.
ENTERGYWAS CALLED AND THIS ISSUE WAS FINALIZED. DUE TO THE
HOLIDAYS, AND JACKSON, MS. WATER MAIN BREAKS NEW WATER TURN-ONS
TOOK BACK STAGE. AFTER THIS CRISIS LIFTED CITY OF JACKSON CAME OUT TO INSTALL A WATER

METER AND TURN ON THE WATER IN MY
APARTMENT. ONLY TO REJECT MY ORDER DUE TO FAULTY PIPING THAT
CAUSED WATER GOING TO APT B TO FLOOD THE DOWNSTAIRS UNIT.
THEY REPORTED THAT WATER COULDNOT BE TURNED ON NO PRESSURE, AND
FLOODING OF THE DOWNSTAIR APT WERE ALL NOT UP TO CODE, AND
PROPER PERMITS AND INSPECTIONS HAVE TO FOLLOW GUIDE LINES BEFORE
WATER WAS TO BE TURNED ON IN THE UNIT REQUESTING SERVICES.
I IMMEDIATELY CALLED MISS ANTHONY TO COMPLAIN AND GET THIS ISSUE
TAKEN CARE OF ASAP. SHE SAID SHE WOULD CALL THE PLUMBERS AND GET
RIGHT ON IT. MEANWHILE, WATER CRISIS IS TURNING BACK TO NORMAL
FOR MOST MY NIGHTMARE HAD JUST BEGAN... I ASK MY NEIGHBOR IN
APT. A TO FILL UP BUCKETS TUBS N GALLON JUGS WITH WATER TO WASH,
FLUSH THE TOILET, AND BOIL TO CLEAN FOR A PERIOD OF 21 DAYS.
CALLING MISS ANTHONY EVERY WEEK JUST TO SEE THE PROGRESS OF THE
FIXING OF MY PIPES. MONDAY, JAN 18TH WAS MLK HOLIDAY, SO I
WAITED TIL TUESDAY, JAN. 19TH AND CALLED MISS ANTHONY, SHE
EXPRESSED THAT THE PLUMBER WOULD COME OVER AS SOON AS HE GOT OFF
FROM HIS "FIRST" JOB...
WHEN HE ARRIVED, I NOTICED IT WAS THE SAME MAN WHO HAD INSTALLED
THE HEATING & AIR-CONDITIONING UNITS IN MY APT. HE TURNED ON THE
WATER, TO TRY AND FIND A SOLUTION.
HE STATED THAT THERE WERE ISSUES AND PIPES NEEDED TO BE
INSTALLED THAT WERE UNDERGROUND AND IN THE WALL, AND THAT HE
COULDN'T DO IT BECAUSE HE DIDN'T HAVE THE CORRECT TOOLS, AND HE
WOULD HAVE TO COME BACK WHEN HE COULD EARLIEST TIME WOULD BE
SATURDAY, JAN 23. TO FIX IT.
WEDNESDAY, JAN. 20, 201O FROM MY CELL I TEXTED
MISS ANTHONY TO INFORMED HER OF MY NECCESITY TO USE THE BATHROOM! I NEEDED TO BATHE,

WASH CLOTHES, CLEAN UP THE SMOKE DAMAGE APT LEFT FROM THE FIRST INCIDENT AT THE SAME

APT. AND SHE NEEDED TO GET SOMEONE OVER HERE SOONER THAN
SATURDAY 23, 2010
SHE TEXTED BACK "LET ME CALL HIM NOW"
I CALLED HER BACK TO ASK HER HIS RESPONSE, AND WAS TOLD HE WOULD BE OVER IN THE MORNING.
JAN. 21, 2010.
JAN. 21, 2010
AFTER HE ARRIVED AND THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED THE JOB AT HAND, HE DETERMINED IT WAS A JOB

THAT WOULD REQUIRE OLD FLOORING TO BE PULLED UP AND REPLACED, WALLS TO BE TORNED DOWN,

WELDING, AND NEW PLUMBING.
HE AT THAT TIME SAID WAS A MAJOR JOB. AND I WOULDNT HAVE WATER EVEN AFTER HE DID IT

BECAUSE THE CITY OF JACKSON, WOULD HAVE TO COME OUT AND ISSUE A PERMIT AND INSPECT THE

JOB AFTER MISS ANTHONY RE APPLIED WITH THE PROPER BUILDING CODES AND ETC.
I CALLED AND INFORMED MISS ANTHONY OF MY DISSATISFIED THOUGHT OF NO WATER SINCE I MOVED,

AND THE POSSIBILITY OF NOT HAVING WATER IN MY "ALLEDGED NEWLY RENOVATED APT" SHE

PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED ON CRAIGS LIST.  SHE SAID SHE WOULD LOOK INTO IT AND CALLED ME

BACK TO SAY EVERYTHING WOULD BE RESOLVED TOMMOROW JUST BE A LITTLE PATIENT WITH HER.

AFTER 3PM AND HE WOULD RETURN TO FINISH THE REQUIRED REPAIRS, AND ALL WOULD BE WELL...
FRIDAY JAN.22,2010 THE MAN RETURNED, AND STARTED BANGING AND BUSTING THE FLOORS IN MY

APARTMENE, THE CEILING IN THE APARTMENT BELOW, AROUND 2:30 PM A STRANGE WHITE STRONG

SMELLING FOG STARTED TO FILL MY APT, MAKING IT UNBEARABLE TO BREATHE, DARYL RETURNED TO

SEE AND INFORMED ME, THAT MAN WAS DOWNSTAIRS WORKING AGAIN, "I SAW HIM WELDING SUMTHIN"

DARYL STATED. AND THE PROPPED THE DOOR ON AND CUT ON THE CENTRAL AIR, TO HELP WITH

BREATHING IN THESE UNIDENTIFIED FUMES.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Welcome to Jackson and to Mississippi

AUTHOR: Anon. - (United States of America)

I have lived all over the country, but moved here from Illinois in 1999.  I lived in Richland for two years in my own house, in various apartments in Jackson for a while, and since 2003 I have been sharing a house.  

Mississippi has many advantages in that it has a warm climate, fresh air, wonderful food, and generally nice and mannerly people, with a regard for tradition.  However, it is extremely difficult to secure an apartment or house (somewhere to live) at a decent price on short notice unless you know someone on-site who "knows the lay of the land."  The renting people present contracts that do not preserve any rights at all for those that rent and make it hard to gain any satisfaction.  Real estate and real estate agents might as well be biker gangs.  City government does have inspectors and you can report your landlord, landlady, or agency to them, but the cases are backed up and the resolution can be extremely slow (Jackson).

If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.  Also, most if not all of the time, the apartment rental companies in Jackson will steal your deposit by claiming you did not clean you apartment when you moved out, even if you hired a professional company to do so.

Your best move is to check the Jackson Free Press for roommates and see if you can share an apartment or house.  There is also an agency that makes arrangements like this for a small fee at the Rainbow Grocery, the natural food store in Jackson, MS.
