    Ha ha. Talk about worst scenario.
    However In the above example dwellings are legal, Insurance is legal. But granny didn't burn :-). wonder how a lawyer will see that.

    Ok in that case, will someone be kind enough to mention the right way (procedure) ;

    - Of making a Extra building (granny or what ever) a legal dwelling.
    - Of making sure a dwelling is not just a granny flat (before buying). Is it mentioned in the deed?

    Appreciate your time.

    Cheers

    It will take your lawyer 30 seconds to check. H&I's are 2 legal dwellings and recorded on the title. H&G's are 1 dwelling also noted on title

    It not hard to understand people don't deal with illegal dwellings!! it is problematic, dangerous, can cost you a fortune to rectify, and not Worth the trouble.

    Is it mentioned in the deed?
    few other options:

    best have a look at the property file and LIM
    get a print out from RPNZ Or Property Guru, which in most cases it say something like multi unit Home and income etc.

    If In chch Have a chat on the phone with the people at CCC and most cases you can find this out.

    Also look at the rates and address if 2 rates so obviously, if have 2 address as well.

    The problem is that the term "illegal" dwelling has become such an ill defined grey area as there are literally hundreds of differing situations out there, as has been recently brought out and revealed with the staggering number of new TT cases arising where tenants are jumping on a major bandwagon able to claim back all of their rent .

    Yes well i thought i would raise this issue again especially in the light of recent happenings and in particular highlight the situation of landlord Vic Inglis whos ratbag tenant without any authority sublet the basement of the house she was renting from him - it was later found not too have a consent and then all the money for the entire house has been ordered back to the tenant after Vic evicted her for this and rowdy parties. This is a gross injustice, a facebook discussion has been setup:
