Well I know this is an old thread but I thought I'd chip in this...

My mortgage on a duplex that was half owner occupied just stipulated that I'd live in it for at least 1 year to qualify for the owner occupied rate. From reading the documents it doesn't seem to me that the loan paperwork is any different for a single family home up to a 4-plex. Its all boilerplate.

So assuming my loan is common you can likely (you would need to check of course) rent your place out without any trouble.
