Rent primary residence after Stremline Refinancing in VAHi I would like to refinance my current primary residence with FHA streamline. One possibility that my family is considering is renting out this residence in order to purchase a larger home. I have been given contradicting advice from different lenders as to whether this is possible or not. Some state you must stay in the home for 12months others say this is not a requirement. We want to make sure we don't break the requirements of the mortgage so were hoping you could shed some light on this situation.August 29 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
