The Dutch sentence could mean both renting out and renting to stay in it, right?

That would be "verhuren" I think

What's the difference between "een achtertuin" and "een tuin" ? If the yard is behind the house, it is obligatory "een achtertuin" ?

"Achtertuin" is just more specific. You can also simply use "tuin".
