Re: [Rental Apartment] Deposit [Zurich]

View Post
Deposits arent always multiples of the rent and can be pretty arbitrary. I'm not aware of any legal limits however, I think it's entirely at the landlords discretion.

7500.- definitely seems a little excessive though, and I'd start wondering about the landlords motives behind requesting such a large amount.

(edit: sorry, I forgot to quote chuk)
I wonder if they somehow got round the limit by splitting the deposit into 2, half to be paid by me, half to be paid by me, I mean by the wife

The landlord is a big Baugenossenschaft and the apartment is a spanking brand new 5.5er so I'm not going to argue.
