Rental accommodation in New Zealand is typically unfurnished, with a 3-month minimum lease. Tenants have to pay a 4-week tenancy bond, which is managed by a government agency, and a rental fee of one week if an agent is involved.
Popular property rental websites include www.trademe.co.nz/property or www.flatfinder.co.nz.
Trademe.co.nz also has cheap second-hand furniture.
Rent is about twice as much in the city as it is in rural areas.
