I am currently staying in my parents' house, and I am paying for rates & taxes, water and electricity as well as repairs. We have no rental contract/agreement of any kind. My parents have moved to the farm and we are using their house. Can I indicate these running costs?

No - these are classified as personal expenses, so it can't be claimed, except ifthe house is leased to a third party, but then the rental income needs to be declared as well.
