Question RE: Registering for utilities

Hello everyone! I apologize if this has been answered in a previous thread. I did a search and came up with nothing.

I am in the process of putting forth an application for a flat here in Kloten. Electricity is not included in the rent. I know things in Switzerland can be quite different than back home in Canada, so I'm wondering what the process is for setting up electricity with the local provider. I guess this question will pertain to telephone and internet as well.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Question RE: Registering for utilities

the landlord will most likely do that. Is it a single-owner property or run by a management company?

telephone and internet will be down to you, get the old phone number of the previous occupant to keep it simple

Re: Question RE: Registering for utilities

gas and electricity and water etc you would take over from the previous tenant, the letting company will organise the papers to be filled out by both parties.
Telephone and Tv you will have to chose a provider yourself

Please do a bit of homework. Some companies have different tariffs, and you might find you could change to a more suitable tariff.
