Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

Not to open new thread and in order to save server's space...

Owner of the flat is coming over tomorrow morning with professional photographer to take photos of the apartment. He said there is nothing to worry about as it is usually long term process to sell a place in Switzerland and it will surely take some time. However I take such assurance with pinch of salt as it is already a signal to me that we should be looking for a new place. What's your guts feeling telling you? Is my concern justified? There is usually few months period of notice but again I wouldn't wanna arrange things in last minute.

A property can be sold very quickly if it is priced to sell but you cannot just get a tenant out quickly. There was an article recently in the HEV newspaper about this topic. It is not so straightforward. Tenants have appealed notices to move and have successfully won extensions for reasons like children wanting to finish the school year. Sometimes the best option is to make a deal with the current landlord and move on your terms. Something to keep in mind, property viewings do not fall under the terms of your rental contract. For this the landlord needs your cooperation and it is a matter of goodwill.

Re: Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

Well, frankly we didn't get to know our landlord up until now. We were in contact via email and phone. The contract was facilitated and endorsed on behalf of the relocation agent (she represented us and did all the paperwork) and we signed the papers.

On the other hand he and his wife (same age like us) seem to be nice people to deal with. We can probably cut some kind of the deal for those remaining years before we move on again. We like the garden and access to other facilities including close distance to our workplaces. Hope it will stay like that for time being.

Re: Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

is it fair to ask the landlord their motivation for selling?
or the prospective buyer for what they plan to do with the property?

If they are looking for investment property then maybe you have nothing to worry about.

Well, it seems like the owner's farher has passed away in old age people's home and he wants to sell his apartment which is quite understood course of actions. He wants to put it on the market in which case 20% will go to real estate agency. He also made us direct offer but we are not sure if we want go invest in such small size of the apartment (2.5 room and 74 sqm). We would rather go for a free standing house or large 4.5 room apartment. I just shake my head if I will have to compare prices to the SA's property market but I guess it is like meerkats compare between pears and apples. It is EU or CH afterall and one must go with the flow.

Bottom line, I would appreciate any replies from whomever has been in similar shoes and had to think ahead of time. Like I say, we like to stay there for few more years and would want to give a plausible reason to the landlord to let us rent there few years longer.

20% to the real estate agency? That is unlikely. Commission on the sale of a property varies but 20% is very high.

I think it is very nice that the owner approached you first. As to whether you can stay for years, that seems unlikely if a buyer is found unless that buyer is just an investor. Have you worked out the numbers to see if given the rent you pay the apartment is a good investment? That may mean it is a good deal for a buyer who then never moves in but is happy to continue renting. But if a potential buyer wants to live in the apartment, then you will not be able to stay for years as wanting an apartment for one's own use takes priority.

Ground floor apartments with a garden can be very attractive to some, to others not.

Unfortunately no one can guarantee a rental property stays a rental situation particularly when a unit is privately owned. If you have been there a few years, and the owner's circumstances have changed, it really just a case of bad luck. You should contact your relocation agent to see if they can negotiate the situation for you. The real estate agent represents the seller, you should have someone acting on your behalf. This may help keep the relationship on good terms.

Also, your owner should not have an apartment key unless you allowed them to have one. If they do have a key, (many owners keep one back and never tell you) they are nto allowed to give the key to the real estate agency so they can show the property.

Exactly.

If you stay there yourself, as owner, costs are much lower than renting. No agents cut of the rent, no landlord insurance, no advertising costs, no void periods, repainting can be done by you when you want. So it is less likely that a single apartment goes to an rental investor. Usually it is the whole block.

Perhaps the landlord is inflating the agents costs, to help justify you a good deal buying? Having you buy is a no brainer for him, even if he sells at 10% below market, agents fees are 3%, and he can't have open days easily, to get the price an owner occupier could etc.

Deceased estate and divorce is when people pick up bargains. If you are paying say 2000 a month rent, then 533K is a 4.5% yield (quicker sale), and 685 is 3.5% (more typical perhaps?).

My idea:
Say you get it at 4.5% yield, pay say 666chf interest a month variable if the normal rent is 2000. Variable is good, as you could have the place marketed for sale over the next 5 years, at top price, possibly getting you up to a 150K deposit, tax free, for your dream house, meanwhile saving 1000 pcm. Call in an estate agent, get a valuation, then tell them your plan. If they think it is no go, they will at least offer to look for a house for you.

20%

I try to get rid of a house in Scotland, and the solicitor there takes 1%, but minimum GBP 650. One of the others wanted 1.5%

Re: Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

Well 20% is what he has told me yesterday when I asked him about the price out of curiosity. I also do not believe in fees being that high. He also wants to sell this place for about 400k (subject to bargain) which is too much for this kind of flat plus it doesn't even have a bathtub (another few $$$ thrown in).

We have got all sets of keys cut and the owner/agent came to see us upon making an appointment with, so no sweat there.

We do not know how long we will be staying in CH and we wouldn't want to invest in something indefinitely. At the moment renting is only option for us. We will look at cons and pros and probably would want to move into more expat's place next time around.

There are lots of options in your area - especially with all those new buildings that have gone up recently.

You could always upgrade and do the Swiss thing - move 2 streets away..

Consider us your neighbours house warming's coming up soon ...

BTW: Is kitchen considered as a room? Then to correct the original post our place is 3.5 rooms (1-living room, 1-bedroom, 1-kitchen, 1-hallway (1/2 room which can be used as a study room) ) + bathroom.

No. The only "rooms" are living and bedrooms. In my un-expert opinion, the "half" room has been the place you put the dining table if it doesn't fit in the kitchen.

Check out a few of the floor plans on the site, and see what they use to describe the place.

(In saying that, when we were looking for a place, one guy had said it was a 6 room house- 3 of the rooms turned out to be storage rooms in the basement.)

And you're already my neighbour- look out the window & wave

I failed to mention that we also have a cellar and two parking spaces (never mind garden and letterbox). Lizards in pebbles marked their territory as well and garden gnomes live all over the bushes.

On a serious not though, I will contact my relocation agent on Monday and discuss the matter. In the meantime, we are checking homegate's and comparis's offers. Thanks for replies and suggestions. We will keep you updated unseren good folks

Re: Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

Dear Jacek,

This happened to us in Jan - our landlord called & wanted to show our apartment that Friday...we did not even know he planned to sell! Then he sent us the official note advising he was selling (our original lease had been up for nearly 2 yrs). We had a long think on it (buy or move) and ultimately decided we needed to rent at least one more year to be sure we wanted to stay & buy in CH. The landlord said there would be three months notice from the time he found a buyer - but that we could move out anytime with just 30 days notice. So we looked around, found something we liked right away and decided to move. But it was expensive - nearly 4.1K for movers & cleaners !! But was covered under my contract so not out of my pocket (thankfully)! Now we are researching and keeping an eye out for something to buy at the end of this lease since it looks like we will be here long term & the difference between rent & mortgage is so large. If the costs of moving had not been covered by employer I would have stayed until the landlord sold it (or I found a place to buy)...never would have spent 4k of my own $$$ just to move for 1 yr! But we did look around & make sure that a suitable apartment would be relatively easy to find...we have 2 big dogs & were concerned. We found plenty to look at that were empty & we just happened to find one we liked better.

400K for 75m2 with garden and 2 parking spaces does not sound over priced. Personally if I had the 20% I'd seriously look into buying it. But, of course, only you know your situation & the area, etc.

It's highly unlikely he was talking about 20% for only agent fees. Probably selling fees, a bit of leeway for negotiation, advertising as well and a bit of exaggeration. The total fees are probably no more that 10%

The market will determine what is the correct selling price but just look at this link.

105m2, built in 1994, 2 bathrooms, plus 1 indoor parking for 470,000.

Re: Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

Aargau has fantastic value properties generally, even compared to parts of the UK. Prices are lower/yields higher because of higher taxes in the Kanton. Sometimes, you don't need 20%. If you have negotiated hard on price, the local Kantonal banks will reduce the deposit by a few percent, and give you as an owner occupier a discount on interest rate compared to their Landlord interest rates.

Of course it will & he will have to figure that out as I can't see his place, I don't know how big the garden is etc, etc, nor can I compare it to the one you posted which is 70k more, is on the second floor, not a garden flat and has one parking space. Bigger alone is the only criteria and there are much few garden flats around.

Re: Is this a sign that I must move out ? [Landlord bringing people for sale]

Thanks everyone for constructive and sound advices...

Just came back from tennis interclub whole day event with our local team playing away. We won 8:1 in singles and doubles combined altogether. So did my better half won in her ladies league. So let's not spoil a day with mind boggling issues cricket IPL was fun too and my favorite MI won by few wickets. What a game it was!!!!

Anyhow, we will look around and tackle this problem asap starting on Monday. Who knows we might find a nicer places and be better off afterall. There is plenty to choose from at our current rental rate. We are positive folks and keep heads up. I guess we need to push our tennis lessons project harder day by day to realize some dreams here. But let's focus on one thing at the time!

You have right to extend your rental contract for another 2 years, after the house ownership change . Ring the tenant association in your canton and they will tell you what to do exactly.
