Personally, I would probably stick to the mount point owned by root,
would not give "tmp"-permissions to it but instead would create a
subdirectory for the backup below the mount-point. At least the default
ownership of the NFS-mounted volume should be owner of that directory on
the remote machine (from memory, could be wrong in this point). So maybe
one point could be to chown the matching directory of "/mnt/new-dest" on
the hosting server (s.t. it would be owned by the backup user). So you
probably need to change the ownership on the machine hosting the real
hard-disk (AFAIK).
