TradeMe pulls listing for caravan inside shed that was offered as rental

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours, a $285 per week rental property, which consisted of a caravan inside a ramshackle shed, has been removed from TradeMe, which says it does not comply with regulations.

The listing, advertised as a one-bedroom property in Waitākere, asked for $285 per week for a single person, or $355 per week for a couple.

The lister, “Rental 123”, said the caravan came with a cooker, small fridge, and hot and cold water.

“Bathroom is shared, cooking is inside caravan. Bed not included, but there is room for a queen or smaller," it said.
