Dear EFS members,
I am posting this to share my recent experience on house hunt and would like to request you to suggest me some steps further.
I arrived in Switzerland (Lausanne) in July 2011, got a flat from September, everything was fine until two of my neighbors started complaining about noise from my flat + cooking odor. I started to receive letters from regie quite frequently. In all my responses, I was requesting them to come over and investigate the situation, because in my opinion the complains are not based on facts. The floor was wooden and it was making noise whenever we stepped on it. I used to get 3 times louder noise from my neighbor above.
The regie was not interested to come over or discuss, I was outplayed due to fact that it was two complaining against one. I received contract termination notice on 15 February 2012, asking me to leave by 31st March. I contacted asloca and they advised to go to commission de conciliation to fight against it. I was not willing to retain the flat as the floor was really of poor quality but I was told that I can stay in the flat this way until I find a new one.
later I sub-rented a flat from one of my friends. I withdrew my appeal in commission de conciliation as there was no point to continue. Now I have to leave the current flat because his family is coming over to Switzerland. he failed to find a new apartment as he lost job.
before I bore you completely, let me go into the most recent fact. I am not getting any flat because the new regie calls the old regie and when they hear that my first contract is terminated, they reject my dossier. I tried to explain my position but the agents do not want to hear anything further. In their opinion I must have been a criminal!
I'm seriously thinking of going to court to resolve the extreme situation, because I think I have the right to get an accommodation in where I work.
my question to you is, would that help? thanks for your kind feedback

Seriously, come over here and live in France, commute to Lausanne by the 07.00 or the 08.20 boat each morning - thousands do it every day. With this means, you would not be subject to the petty restrictions and regulations which abound in CH.
