Background Check Length

I live in an apartment where I have to notice the landlord by mail, one month in advance, so if I do it by the end of this month, I have to stay the next full month also.

I've learned that if you apply for an apartment, and you get accepted, you pay a fine of approx 200 CHF if you don't agree to the contract you receive, however I've been told background checks usually take 2 weeks.

However, in my case, if I get accepted but the answer comes too late, and I have to extend my current stay by 1 month, will I still be charged the fee?
E.g. the answer comes in 3rd of May, and I have to stay May+June and actually start in July?

How can I state that I am unable to move if the answer doesn't come soon enough, and if it does come too late, I can avoid paying the fee?
