Renting my condo

I have owned a condo apartment for five years. I do not have a mortgage. My parents gave me the money to pay for it cash, and I pay them back at a rate $800 a month, no interest. The condo was not a gift as I'm fully expected to repay my parents. I suppose the "gift" was a loan with no interest. I want to move out and rent my place out. More details inside. [more inside]
