Re: Lease cancelation - Special circumstance

View Post
Hi all,

Is there in Switzerland special circumstance i.e being transferred to another place for work that allows special treatment of the lease cancellation notice period? Just want to make sure before going through the process of presenting a candidate ready to take over to the landlord.

No.... unless it is specifically written in the lease that you can leave when you want. Not even if death frees the lease, the heirs have to continue paying until the end of the lease or until they can present a solvent new renter.

Talk about tough, I almost choked when I read that.

Re: Lease cancelation - Special circumstance

My dad died just after the official notice date- so we could have been responsible for his rent for 8 months. Fortunately we found a suitable tenant very quickly and we knew the owner, who wanted to do some repairs, re-decoration (to increase the price) - so we were let off the hook. We just paid 2 months after his demise, but agreed for them to have the keys to get on with work.
