John Edward's Mistress' SoCa Landlord COULD Have Told Him About Her!

Yes * there are some things that the prior landlord can't and won't tell a new landlord or a would-be presidential candidate.

While I like that John Edwards mistress and mother of his daughter, Rielle Hunter's, former SoCA landlord thinks she was a good tenant * paid her rent on time and kept their rental home clean * it is unfortunate that she could not have "shared" some of the more "odd" behavior of her tenant.


Even when she met Edwards during t
he campaign, she did not have her crystal ball handy to see that his and Hunter's future paths would be crossing.

Likewise, landlords, property managers and real estate agents need to be very careful when they provide REQUESTED information on their residents or former residents.

We are privy to lots of gossip and drama in addition to our residents' financial and employment information.

Not everyone who asks has a right to this information and the best CYA for landlords is to get a written authorization from residents prior to providing it.  Just because a phone caller may have specifics of residents names and addresses does not mean that they have a legitimate right to information from you.

Asking that a written and signed authorization be provided is the BEST way to make sure that we are not in the limelight IN THE WRONG WAY!

This makes absolute and perfect sense to me.  And if they don't like that you're asking, the heck with them.
