Caravan renting

Roger asks:

I own and live in a three bedroom home on the North Shore of Auckland. There's a large lawn with turf blocks for parking on. I am considering parking a caravan on site to rent out. I am considering giving the tenant access to the toilet and laundry in my house behind an internal security door within my house. I believe some councils have a duration limit on living in a caravan. Can you refer me to any rules and regulations regarding this.

Using sleepout for Airbnb

Chen asks:

I am looking at purchasing a property as a rental income investment. This property has a main house and an independent sleepout unit, which has an ensuite and insulation. My question is whether it is legal - and good from an investment perspective - to do a long term rental for the main house and seperate the sleepout for visitor accommodation - eg. AirBnb? Many thanks!

Accommodating repairs

Paula asks:

I've been advised by the local council that we have a water leak. This has been investigated by our plumber. The problem is that it’s under the concrete floor so it will be a major to fix. Can we give 90 days’ notice to our tenants? (Although that will mean lots of water damage and a large water bill in those 90 days.) Or can the house be classed as unliveable to get the tenants to move out faster?

Note that they will have no bathroom or kitchen while we find the leak and fix it. We are happy for the tenants to move back after that repairs and we will be asking them if they have a possible place to stay while the leak is being repaired. I'm just not sure how to progress.
