My fiance owns one part of a duplex that we live in. Our attached neighbors are talking about selling, could I buy their side with a FHA loan living on the other side?

 I don't see why not. You currently rent 123 Main St. You are buying 125 Main St. Your obvious motivation is homeownership. You will of course have to owner occupy 125 Main St for a year.

Then if you want to buy it using FHA in your name, you have to move into the unit you are buying and rent out hers.
