    Compare the cost of raw building materials - NZ vs Aussie.
    That's part of the reason.
    The other part are compliance costs (Council charges) + health & safety rules.

    Seems these anti-vaxxers are actually scammers exploiting the fears of others and giving medical advice.
    Why is the media giving them coverage?

    You're right of course.
    School kids marching along the streets chanting "Leave the carbon in the soil" is far more important.

    Seriously, making money from giving medical advice?

    Should be no problem doing this.
    Rent it for 9 months then terminate as you want to change its use to PPOR.
    Revert to a rental after the summer 3 months.
    Repeat each year.

    That's sort of what I do with ASB all the time.
    They send me a reminder 2 months in advance.
    When I'm ready I fix for the cheapest rate - always 12 months, latest one was 3.39% I think.
    No break...

    I think it would quite easy for a family member to move in and remove that risk.
    I do think there is merit as suggested today to not having WINZ customers as tenants.

    Seems a reasonable thing to do.
    I suppose you would wait till they...
