I'm going to buy a house by FHA loan, the problem is that the seller is asking for 5 months lease back. Is it possible to do so and lease the house back to seller for 5 months after closing?

Hello,FHA requires that you move into the home within 60 days after the close of escrow. The seller could only lease back to you for two months and not five. Call me if you have more questions or concerns. Jennifer Wilson 951 264-1003

That is not acceptable.. FHA requires you take possession within 60 days of closing.. This is not something that FHA is flexible on, so you cannot agree to 5 months..

As William, Jericho, and Jennifer have stated you have to move into the homewithin 60 days.

Not officially. FHA rules require you occupy the home within 60-days of closing. Lending in MN, WI, and SD - www.SaintPaulMortgageBroker.com
