Renting a room and residence permit in Basel

Hi everybody

I came to Basel 2 weeks ago with my girlfriend and we find very nice 2 rooms apartment in Kleinbasel. As we are staying in one room, second one stayed free, for some time until colleague from work told me that he is searching for a place to live...

with my girlfriend we already managed our residence permits. my colleague has to do it right now.

I am not sure how it works with renting rooms if we are already tenants??? there is nothing written in our contract about how many persons should be in the flat, but I am afraid to ask our renting company if that is possible, because then my friend can lost his room and we can lost some financial support (and one room will stay free).

Does anybody know how it works? Do I have a right to rent that room without informing renting company? Is there any problem if my colleague would like to ask for residence permit? In RP document, there are quite a lot of specific information about apartment...I am afraid if there is any information system that will inform renting company about one more more person living in an apartment. Please let me know if anybody has an experience in it.

Yes you need to inform your residency agency that who all people are living in the apartment and of-course they will require all the details about him/her.
In addition to that you should also inform Cantons/Migrations office about that. I hope that helps.
