What does your note state when it comes to leasing the property?

If your bank asked for at least 25-30% as a down payment on this second home, you are probably conforming to the same mortgage rate that they'd request for investment property.

So on that basis, it does not seem like there would be a problem renting out this home in Boca Raton. Just to be certain, you may want to check with your real estate attorney and read your loan terms carefully.

Also, as was noted above, if this is a condo, make sure the rules permit immediate rental. If this is a single family home, you are not likely to find community restrictions against rental, even if there is an HOA. But, it's always good to check.

Yes, a loan does not prevent you from renting the property. However, if the property is in a mandatory homeowner or condo association the bi-laws may include rental restrictions.

Ca - I agree with Nitza. However,if there is any language in your
mortgage agreement that raises any doubt in your mind,
have your attorney review it. Peace -of-mind clears the
way to move forward!

I don't see any reason why not, unless there are terms in the loan that estipulate you can't rent the property.
