Deregister in one town hall without being allowed to register in another one

I want to move between cantons. I think I can deregister without any problems where I live, but since I plan to go to some temporary housing (temp apt. or airbnb is what I'm considering, yeah I know airbnb is not meant for that I guess), without an open-ended rental contract, I don't think I can register to the hypothetical new town hall. I have a B permit. AFAIR I read in these forums that I can be in limbo for a couple of months, I think about 6, but not longer.
Another thing is the post — I suppose it won't be a problem to give a new domicile, for example, to the bank, since, when I leave my apartment, I won't tell my new address to the present landlord.

Any thoughts?

During my first 6 weeks here I lived in a hotel and received my new B permit. I don't see why you will have a problem with private accommodation.

If you want better advice, give the town location where you live, please.

Yeah I will. But in the meantime I just want to gather some hearsay at EF If I get info from the local town hall, I want it in written form and that takes probably weeks. Oral info in CH is far from accurate and reliable, but that's just my experiences.
Your case was in Murten or, generally speaking, in Kanton Bern?

Re: Deregister in one town hall without being allowed to register in another one

It was in Muntelier, in Canton Fribourg.

Plenty of people register in hotels, some move hotel & canton every 2 weeks and avoid taxation.

Why not ask the new town, where you will register, if you don't believe me?

Don't ask for the information in writing, that would insult the town registration clerk!

Re: Deregister in one town hall without being allowed to register in another one

I didn't imply not believing you. I'm checking online and there are c/o forms to be filled by the new administration/landlord/host/etc. Maybe it's less complicated than I thought.

I didn't new about the moving-taxation thing that you mentioned. Oh well...not my cup of tea, I guess.

Re: Deregister in one town hall without being allowed to register in another one

I really don't care whether you believe me or not, the point is: why ask a complete stranger when you could telephone the Gemeinde and get the definite reply?

I just read your first post again, about being "in limbo for 6 months". Where did you get that idea? Usually you MUST register within 10 working days (2 calendar weeks).

And you must tell the old landlord where you are moving to. Swiss post will forward your mail for about Fr 30 for one year,

I think you are going to make some serious mistakes if you are not careful. Why not read a book, "Living & Working in Switzerland"

The limbo thing I read it in EF, AFAIR, for when people doesn't have a fix stable domicile.

As for telling the old landlord where I'm moving to, I don't see the obligation, can you provide some regulation, law or something to back that?

Thanks for the link to the post, btw.

I read the 'Living & Working in Switzerland' by the Bundesamt für Migration, but in reality YMWV.

You might want to re-read Sbrinz's as there's a lot of good advice in there.

As for deregistering and re-registering you have either 8 days or 14, depending on the canton in which to accomplish this so check with your old/new places to find out exactly. Never 2 months and certainly not 6!

If you're staying in an hotel for a few weeks then re-registering shouldn't be a problem, but there have been comments here on the forum that AirBnB accommodation isn't usually acceptable.

You could try and arrange either for your post to be held for you to collect from a post office or a post box.

https://www.post.ch/en/private/recei...ceipt-location

Or simply have them hold it until you get a new permanent address, assuming you won't need to pay any bills, etc.

https://www.post.ch/en/private/recei...n-mail-private

Sbrinz meant the book "Living and Working in Switzerland" by David Hampshire. More comprehensive than the FOM's.

Re: Deregister in one town hall without being allowed to register in another one

Thanks for the links Medea, I get my bills online, although sometimes the bank still sends one or two communications by snail mail. I usually don't read dummy guides and resort to official handbooks and read the laws myself, and chat with the officials. I checked AirBnB here in EF and, my guess is, it depends on your host and the Gemeinde asking for a c/o form signed by the host, or not.
