Kia ora Anatole,
Thank you for your request for information. Unfortunately we are not the
best department to assist with your request. We suggest the best place to
contact is Tenancy Services . We found the below information on the
website that might help you.
Each property must have:
• A room that can be used as a kitchen or kitchenette with a
sink and tap connected to useable water, and has adequate means of
preparing and cooking food both by boiling and by baking. In most
accommodation arrangements, this will require a working oven that bakes
and stovetop elements (or similar) to be considered adequate.
• A bathroom with a shower or bath and running hot water
• A toilet (inside or outside the property) for the exclusive
use of those that live in the property
• Provision for the washing of clothes (if the house is
intended for the use of 2 people or more)
Minimum sizes for rooms depend on how the property is set out.
Check the Building Act and Code for wider requirements on properties built
