Re: Leaving apartment - Service technician
The conclusion is there is no other option but to get a representative from the manufacturer. Checking of the fridge, cooktop, dishwasher, microwave and oven by Siemens set us back 250 chf. We expect V-Zug will charge us something similar for the other items.
Even though it is not a requirement in many lease contracts, the Siemens guy did say that it is become more common.
Speaking with the handover agent, he suggested that it is questionable (has not been challenged in court) whether the cost should be borne by the tenant as the landlord is supposed to maintain the appliances. We were not however game to test the theory and so did not send the bill to the landlord.
