Re: Leaving flat in Lausanne with Domicim and Swisscaution... Get prepared!

They really say you owe the premium even though no new damage can be caused once you've moved out already.

Yes, that's what I thought this is why I want to act now in order to avoid the scenario.

Perhaps you can replace the insurance by an ordinary deposit before you give notice?

That's actually a great idea! I will contact Domicim immediately saying that I want to open a normal deposit account. They should be happy about it, no? I mean, for them an ordinary account should be better than Swisscaution.

The only thing I wonder is: how will they react if I also tell them that I want to leave the flat in November? Just to be safe I will try to do the deposit and Swisscaution cancellation *before* I give them notice of leaving the flat, but I don't know if there's gonna be enough time.

Yet another reason to not use them.

You're absolutely right I did not want to use Swisscaution, but unfortunately there were some timing issues, and it seemed that doing the Swisscaution thing was faster than opening a deposit account at UBS. A matter of few days, but those made the difference.

Just for completeness, I checked, and it is not true that I did not pay the premium in 2018, I did but it was a reduced one. Actually it was shameful, it was almost 100% of the normal yearly premium, even if it was just for the month of December! Swisscaution = evil.

Your form is a duplicate, you need the original (and signed) that's in the regie's possession.

Yeah, could be. Not that it makes any difference without both signatures

If you want to leave without hassle, maybe don't call the company a-holes on a publicly viewable forum.

Oh, did I mistakenly write a-holes? So sorry, I meant honest gentelemen
