    Smile verifying ownership at Gold Coast

    if you wanted to verify that someone owns a townhouse at Gold Coast (got the listing from VRBO) how would you go about that? does anyone who has a townhome there know who I would contact just to be sure they do own the townhome. this is our first year renting from this person so we want to be sure.

    thanks!!

    its not that I can't. no one responds back to me from the gold coast. i've actually spoken to the person a few times and they are from my state. and they do have a bunch of reviews on their site. i'm just very thorough. i did this last year and the person at gold coast management did respond to my email that the person was an owner. but maybe i'll wait a week and see if they respond. but i think i'm being too overly cautious.
