I just bought a rental property two weeks ago and plan to let my children live there. I have a mortgage that they will pay me for to cover the expense. At some point, they will purchase the home. For tax purposes, is this considered rental property and can I still claim the mortgage deduction?


Expert Mark Anderson's Answer:

Yes. The IRS may look at it as a related party transaction. I would make sure you document the rental transaction by having a written lease agreement and charging rent this the going rate in the area. I hope this answers your question.
