That's a very good question. Initially find out who is offering it for rent. If the owner, you can verify if they are the owner in your county's tax records. If it is a property manager, look them up in your state's division of real estate. since property managers must be licensed in Colorado (others should check with their state) If you are still in doubt, before signing any lease, ask for picture identification and ask the person if you may see some proof that they manage the property, such as a utility bill or rental property tax filing form with that address on it.

Good luck!
