Renting out mortgaged properties

6 Replies

Quick question: So all I hear is about renting out properties you have a loan on. Now I just got my first mortgage at 2.25% and if I wanted to rent it out what is the process? Should I put it in a trust? May my contract have a waiting period being a USDA loan? Anyone have that answer or should I ask an attorney? And if I want to keep acquiring rentals with notes on them what tips may anyone have for me in getting started? Thankyou

Did you tell the lender this would be your primary residence? If you put the finance property in a trust let the lender know.

My properties have mortgages on them. What does a trust do?

If you got a USDA loan, you signed documents saying this was going to be your primary residence. Wait at least a year, and then I don't know what USDA loan requirements are, but you should.

@Robert Lunt Yeah, you should go back and read the terms of your mortgage. If you bought it as a Primary residence and you immedietly rent it out it can be looked at as mortgage fraud, not something you wanna play around with.

Live in the house for a year, during that time you can read what you signed

Yes I think I recall the closer telling me I had to wait 2 years.
