Single family residences, Duplexes, triplexes and four plexes fall under basic conventionl underwriting guidelines. Most lenders private and institutional look at anything under four units as a conventional property. the problem occures when you go over 4 units. 5 units and up are considered commercial propertys and are alot harder to finance.
