Rayvt, like I've repeated several times. What I wanted to do was cross out the occupancy clause or avoid it before signing.

Which is the same thing as saying you want an investor mortgage for the price of the cheaper primary residence mortgage. If you need the extra flexibility an investor mortgage provides, pay for it. The banks won't give you it for free.

Good luck. For your sake I hope you listen to the decades of experience on this board, but as I tell my teens, as much as we would like you to benefit from our mistakes and avoid repeating them, it is more likely that you won't learn until you screw up yourself.
