Re: Can I cancel a lease (mietvertrag) signed 2 days ago, no money exchanged yet?

Just to close out this thread.. I got the sense that the landlord was going to make it difficult on me so have done the "right" thing and will be honouring the lease. I did ask him for permission to sublet a room as needed which was granted and will be looking to rent a small room on a temporary basis.

When I say I can't afford it this is not based on % salary but rather that I still have a mortgage in the UK and had underestimated my taxes/insurance costs in Switzerland (and was even given a wrong calculation by my employer).

Thanks again to all for your advice though.
