What is the penalty for renting out your FHA home?

When purchasing an FHA home, many people have the idea to rent out the property at some point. Some people are under the mistaken impression that this is against the rules. The basic purpose of FHA loans is to help individuals qualify for a loan for their primary residence. For this reason, you cannot immediately rent out an FHA home. You have to move into the home within 60 days, and you have to live there for a year before renting it. If you rent out the home before that and the FHA finds out, you may have to pay a fee that is outlined in your loan documents.
