i think you can do one thing, it worked for some of the people i know. you can ask the people to send the applications to you and you can forward the same to the agency keeping a copy with you. this way you can be sure on the number of people applying. and In Swiss people are in plenty who are searching for an apartment.

| || |Hi folks
I am in this situation that we are leaving our apartment before the expiration of the contract and some days ago posted an ad on following sites:
On top of the above I also opened a Google Ads account and purchased a Google ad that links to the ad placed on one of the above sites(!) OK it might look like overkill but I wanted to get someone to this apartment and at the same time find out how effective a Google Ad would be in this respect.
I now have a question about how to make sure that the apartment company takes into considerations the applications that they receive. At the moment I do not have any application forms from the apartment company because I thought that I could just ask the prospective tenants to contact them directly. But then I started thinking what if they direct the person to another of their apartments instead of mine (they have another empty apartment in a nearby building; it is about the same size and price). Also, the apartment company has their office in Fribourg, about 45 minutes drive out of Yverdon...so some of the applications would be done by fax or through their website...which means that I would not have much control of the applications...
Does anyone know if the apartment caretaker (concierge) typically has application forms? My french skills are not great but I could try asking him if there is a possibility that he has some...
A related issue is that my understanding of this process is that I need provide at least one candidate that is able to pay the rent and would reasonably qualify for the apartment. For example, if I got an interested person who was "blacklisted" by my apartment company, it would not count toward this "provide at least one candidate" rule (someone pleeease correct me if I am wrong). But how would I determine if they are a qualified candidate? Do I need to ask them questions about their income, past rental history and so on?
Thankful for any assistance in this matter...
