Oct 2009 FHA Loan - Can I rent now?I know those with FHA loans must have their new home be their primary residence for the first 36 months of the loan or they risk paying back the tax credit and other issue. However, I am 30 of 36 months in on my loan and took a job 70 miles away from the home. Am I eligible to rent out the home early because of my new job? Or must I leave the house empty for 6 months before renting it out?I can't seem to get a straight answer on this.
