Hattiesburg residents suing apartment manager over living conditions

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Two Hattiesburg apartment tenants are outraged by the treatment they've received from their apartment manager.

Kayla Hatten and Dija O'neil moved into Southern Court months ago, and say a maintenance crew "doesn't exist."

They say the pool is filled with mold, and the complex is falling apart. Hatten said the apartment is also infested with roaches, and a roofing project hasn't been completed.

The apartment manager demands they pay last month's rent, say the tenants. Hatten and O'neil received an eviction notice last week, and will go before a judge this Wednesday. They plan on suing the apartment manager, Charles Syfarth.
