Why don?t you have your family members live in the house that you have the lease on instead? That would illuminate your problem.
I?m assuming that your family member is going to pay rent to compensate for you paying on both homes. If not and you?re letting them live rent free, then I?m sure it wouldn?t make any difference.
If I were to circumvent my agreement and sincerely intend to live in the home 8 months later as you say. Then I would change my address on my driver?s license, as well as all of my important contacts or people I do business with. I?d receive my mail there, open up all utilities on the house in my name and show a presence at that residence. When the time comes for you to report your income taxes I would have the new address on those forms. It would then be difficult for anyone to challenge you.
Food for thought,
