Re: Subletting temporary in Zürich?


Yes we did this successfully. Posted the home homegate.

You need to respect the following:
1) Cannot make a profit. If you rent furnished you can rent at higher rent but has to be reasonable (up to 10% is what I was quoted)
2) you need to inform the Verwaltung of who you are subletting to and the conditions of the contract (we just sent them a copy)
3) It has to be limited in time (there is no time limit but you cannot do a contract without a time.limit as one of the conditions of the sublet is that you intend to return).

Yes you can rent it out with one room locked - we kept the cellar - just reduce the rent accordingly.

Additionally we made sure we had:
1) The bank guarantee same amount as the one we have with the Verwaltung in a blocked bank account
2) legal insurance to protect the sublet contract in case things went wrong

Nothing much went wrong so far but we have not yet returned

Any questions ask here or PM
