Fred Vernon rents out his 4bd-house to medical students in Houma. I rented a room for >6months and was a good tenant by always paying rent on time and making sure all lights were off at night. I never had guests over and was mostly at the hospital or at a part-time job so never used much of electricity. His craigslist post never mentioned paying a deposit but I naively did once I moved in since other students did as well. I moved out in April and was told to expect the deposit back by the end of May. It is almost the end of June and I have yet to receive my money. He ignores my phone calls and emails. I'm not his first victim since he also withheld previous students' deposits as well. Anyway, make sure you don't deal with him...there are other places in Houma to rent from. If you need a place then ask Liz, the hospital coordinator, for a list of housing properties.
This is his Craiglist post:
All utilities included. Fully furnished. Cable TV, internet, washer and dryer. Covered parking. Full use of the house and facilities. Patio and large back yard. Great for medical students. Very close to Chabert. Email for details and tell me about yourself. Room with a private bath also available for $600 a month.
the house is on MaryAnn Ave.
