Co-Locator issues / Mietvertragübertragung

Big problem, since a few weeks our co-locator started to drink and take pills en masse, he damaged the appartement in the past two days ( toilet door now sliding hard on the Parkett, Walldamage in kitchen)

My wife and me are moving out in a few days, we have signed together the contract with him as Solidarmieter last year until 30/06/2011.

Needless to say, he changed dramatically in the past weeks compared to last year.

I am currently trying to arrange for a Mietvertragübertragung for him to be the sole person mentioned in the contract from 14.03.2011 (thats when my wife and I move out) until it runs out in June.

I am prepared to sue the hell out of him as my wife and I have witnessed the shit he is doing.

Is it better to go to the landlord and inform them that after we move out their appartement will be trash in 2 months? In my opinion it is very possible this will happen.

Could they kick him out?

I am pretty sure you have to declare serious damage to the Agent/Landlord. If it is criminal damage, then maybe the Police too. Your insurers may want to know. All three will want to minimize further damage, and might claim you are liable for this for not informing them at the time.

Re: Co-Locator issues / Mietvertragübertragung

If both of your names are on the contract, then you both are responsible. Suing him is likely not an option, a recent case in Lausanne the leasee had to pay some 20,000 chf of damages done by a sub-renter, the experts acknowledged the law was not really fair in this respect. Although this seems to be a slightly different situation, you appear to have contractual obligations. I assume you have insurance for the rental, and perhaps also worth looking into legal protection insurance very quickly.

Re: Co-Locator issues / Mietvertragübertragung

I have a Private Haftpflichtversicherung and a Hausratsversicherung, do they usually cover this? Does it count in case it gets to the lawyers that we are two against one "witness"?

Re: Co-Locator issues / Mietvertragübertragung

Your Haftpflicht will cover legal fees in certain situations in connection with your appartment. Contact them immediately and they will instruct you on the next steps.
