Only one person named on the rental agreement


My girlfriend (Irish) and I (British) are looking to move to Lugano in a few months time. We are currently in the process of registering a business in Switzerland, along with our Swiss business partner - and intend to issue ourselves employment contracts and apply for residency permits.

We have found an apartment on AirBnB - and the landlord has agreed to a 10 month lease. However, he has stated that he can only register one of us at the address.

He stated that he cannot register both of us to the address, as he would need to find a new address for himself. Despite living abroad, he is currently using the address as his primary residence.

For clarity, we would be renting the entire apartment, and he wouldn't be living in it.

Therefore his solution is to register one of us to property, an addition to himself.

The property is a 2.5 room (1 bedroom) apartment.

As we are looking to move to Switzerland and become tax residents, my concern is that one of us wouldn't be on the rental agreement.

Is there a solution for this situation? Or can we both register at the commune despite not both being on the rental agreement?

Any advice would be much appreciated

Many thanks,
