Re: Rental termination period

Contracts are enforced when there's something to win.

But if you're going to have less income in the near future, the worst thing the landlord can do is enforcing the contract. He wins nothing if you still live there and cannot pay. He would need to start a debt recovery process. Maybe an eviction process too, which is lengthy because the Swiss law makes really difficult to evict tenants for whatever reason. It that takes 6 to 12 months.....with no rental income.

So, there might be some leverage to tell the landlord to accept the termination even if the notice period in the contract is not respected.
