Can I rent back the property to the seller after closing to accommodate scheduling issues?

At least one borrower must occupy the property within 60 days of signing the security instrument and intend to continue occupancy for at least one year.

For additional information see Handbook 4000.1 II.A.1.b.iii.(A)(2)(a) available at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/administration/hudclips/handbooks/hsgh
