I'm not sure how someone can expect the renter to commit to three years...
From what I understand, that was the rule in our building when it was first built. Every tenant had to agree to sign for three years or they would not get the flat. They could of course find new tenants to break the lease with proper notice and all that, but up front it was required. All of them signed for three, and at least two of the tenants signed seven-year leases.

I think landlords have the upper hand in CH, as supply is short and demand is high. They can ask the moon and pretty much get it.
