Re: Rights during construction work

Join the local branch of ASLOCA (tenants association), you'll find them in the telephone book or on google.
They're best placed to advice you of your rights for this and any other issues that might arise from being a tenant in Switzerland.

Realistically, you're probably entitled to a reduction in rent for the duration of the work, but it won't be much as it seems to be fairly minor exterior work rather than anything more disruptive.

Also; if there are other renters in the building ask them what they're thinking/doing about this.
A group action is always more effective than going solo, just bear in mind that the owner might decide to not renew your tenancy when it become due. Another reason for having the backing of ASLOCA if that happens.
Thanks, They are replacing the roof and repainting the whole building, I will consider joining ASLOCA, seems like it might be the best option.
