Or how to make sure the property belong to the person that I am dealing with. I want to avoid rental scam and don't want to give out personal information on application to the wrong person.

Interesting question, there was a scam like this in NYC. An apt was rented to 5 people, who paid security deposits and rent, all showed up to move in, and the "landlord" never owned the place.

You can check with the local county clerk for ownership, or ask for verification from the rental agent.

I think this will be more of a problem soon.
