Hi all, I understand this has been discussed a bit but just wanted to get clarification on the definition of living at the house to claim main residence. Currently we are overseas and have no PPOR. We want to buy a property and then rent the property out until returning to live in it. As this will become our main address and currently have no fixed place of abode can we technically have this as our main residence? We need to have our drivers licences etc and electoral addresses updated to the new place and get the water put on in our name etc so what constitutes living as there as there is no physical record to show that you put a bed in and slept there? As there is no time limit, if the house takes a month to rent can we not claim this as our primary residence seeing as though we don't live anywhere else in Australia but still residents for tax purposes.
