16, And nowhere to live in New Zealand. What options are there?
My Friend two months ago, more or less, found out her mum was moving to the north island, and she would be left with her step dad. Her step dad is now moving to Australia, as his family is over there and he was offered a job there. My friends sister, who was under the mental health act was the only person my friend could of lived with but now her sister is moving with my friends mother. She has 4 weeks to find somewhere to live and source income, what options are there. can a 16 year old rent in NZ legally? she has no real close friends with enough room for her to live with. And its not an option for my friend to move up north as her mother is crazy and abusive. Please help !! - She recently received her birth certificate and is applying for the IRD number as soon as the new school i.d's come out, then she will set up a bank account.
