Re: Rental Application - timeline

Bear with me - I am having loads of questions re housing at the moment!

how long does it take for a rental application to be approved / rejected?

Does this mean that you cannot put it other applications for other properties in the meantime? I understand that you'll have to pay 200 CHF should your application be approved and you reject it.

Putting your eggs in one basket in this highly competitive environment means that you lose quite a bit of time not viewing and putting in application for other properties, should you see something else that is suitable as well, isnt it?
Most agencies and landlords wouldn't charge a fee for rejecting an application, it would make flat hunting an expensive business. Personaly I wouldn't use an agent who tried this on principle.

See as many flats as you need, otherwise you won't get a decent idea of what your money will get you.

EDIT: Took a couple of days for my approval
