    As an aside, you don't 'convert' a house to a rental.
    You just rent it out whenever you want.
    Claiming expenses off the rental income is the tricky part - IRD may turn down your claims and then tax you on the rental income - the worst outcome.
    There's a few accountants on PropertyTalk - offer them some $$$ for advice as they are invaluable on tax matters related to property.

    My understanding is yes. My brother and sister did just this. I believe you tell your accountant the date you move out. I would seek some advice before you buy about what entity structure would be suitable in both circumstances and use that to purchase.

    Please spend an hour with a property accountant to go through this in detail :-)

    Hey All - Sorry I missed this thread earlier. I don't check PropertyTalk as much these days now Graeme's Facebook group is so popular.

    For your insurance, you'll be wanting to notify them in advance, or you risk not being covered.

    For your banking, most mortgages require you to tell your bank when situations change like this. In practice, very few people do it, it's not policed, and no one cares. But strictly I'm sure the banks could change their mind and cause you grief if they wanted to.

    But as far as taxes go, your mortgage interest becomes deductible from the day it stops being owner occupied - or technically, from the day it becomes available to rent. You don't need to notify anyone, but you do need to keep good records for tax purposes. Please note only the mortgage that was used to buy the house would be deductible. If you've subsequently consolidated some credit card debt or a car or holiday loan onto your mortgage, that portion is not ever going to be deductible.

    However, I very highly recommend speaking to a property specialist Chartered Accountant first. There may be tips and tricks specific to your situation that dwarf the costs of advice (savings from chattels depreciation for example often offsets my accounting fee for several years).



    And as an aside Bob Kane - your understanding of how this worked was what I thought for a long time before my training was finished, and had quite an argument here on the forum with someone (Spaceman?) back in 2012 or so! But it simply doesn't make any sense when for example you reverse the situation. If you bought a property as a rental then moved into it, would you still be able to deduct interest? Of course not!
