Re: Swisskaution - the apartment deposit lenders thread

The apartment we wanted required 3 months deposit plus 3 months rent upfront and a contract for 3 years and actually openly said this was because they don't like the risk of renting to foreigners (I am actually Swiss but have lived abroad).
The 3 months deposit I understand, but 3 months rent up front? I wonder whether that is even legal given that it is just a deposit by another name...
