The key item to look for is the priority of the loan you're assuming. That will determine if you can get a refi.

I would say that as long as you maintain your good credit and can show that you have received steady rental income from your duplex that it would not be an issue. A number of people own investment properties as well as homes that they live in. If you are currently looking, I would suggest that you speak with a lender about this and they would be able to give you a more definitive answer. Most any Realtor is going to want you to be pre-qualified before they show you properties so this would be an important first step anyway.
