I start work on the 1st of March, and the earliest I can move is the 23rd of February.
That's loads of time! We had exactly 5 weeks notice.

Just be aware that some agents won't allow apartment viewings at weekends, which was an issue for us and prevented us doing any viewings until we arrived. Also, check out the cost of renting a storage box here if you're moving everything over.

Re: Catch-22

So update time.

The apartment I liked I couldn't even see - they opened viewings the day before and I missed it.

That said, I managed to see four others, one which I like. While in Zürich I also popped by a bank branch... three branches later and I have two bank accounts (savings and current) which is nice. No permit needed, but I need to bring a permit within three months or be charged a non-resident account fee.

Next challenge.... figuring out how to provide the lanlord a Betreibungsregisterauszug, without yet having a residence permit.

Oh the logic....

LOL, I doubt that is possible!
Don't you have an equivalent where you live now?

based on my (poor) understanding of what it is the closest thing in the UK I think would be a register of CCJ's? Credit history is much more detailed in the UK. It includes how much money you have in every account, credit card card and loan...

That said I have no idea how to "export" (shall we say) either of those into a format that would suit a Swiss landlord....


Edit: think I found it !!
https://www.gov.uk/county-court-judg...-credit-rating

Will report if it's worked with the landlord once that's submitted... may be of use to future EFers...
