Describe your property
My Own Home
Your own home is your primary residence which you live in. You may live in the home alone, with family or with flatmates. The home could be owned by you personally, by a trust, a company, or in partnership with someone else.
My Own Home, Partially Rented
This is entirely your own personal residence used by you and your family, from which you also rent a room, sleepout, or part of the home to paying guests or boarders. You may use a platform like AirBnb or Bookabach to get your guests, or it might be that you have longer term boarders.
My Own Home, Sometimes Fully Rented
This is your own personal residence that you live in, but sometimes, you rent out the entire home to short term paying guest (eg through Bookabach or Airbnb). Your personal contents remain at the home.
A rental property is a residential house occupied by long term tenants. It is expected that the tenants will remain in the home for more than 90 days. If rent is not paid because the home is occupied by an employee or a member of your extended family, it is still classed as a rental property.
