Sure would be a mistake to begin your investing enterprise with mortgage lender fraud.
At any time that you attempt to get a lender to believe that the situation is other than it is, you are committing fraud. In this case attempting to have the lender believe that you intend ot “owner occupy” when you actually intend to rent, that’s fraud.
If there are any federal funds involved in the mortgage loan then the case would be “federal” mortgage lender fraud.
Not a game that I would reccomend, there are better ways to begin.
