Re: LEGAL HELP: someone lives in our apartment without paying rent

Yes, it is a right in many European cities actually. Not sure about CH, but in places like the Netherlands does it go something like this: If houses are left empty can a person decide to move in and gains the right to live there. That was introduced to counter investors buying up cities to speculate on real estate prices but not actually utilize the houses they bought.
Actually Squatting has luckily been made illegal in 2010 in the Netherlands.

Anyway, this person was allowed to move in, so he by definition is no squatter.
