État de lieu PRELIMINAIRE

Hello everyone!

I'm new in this forum, I have checked it and have not seen any remarks regarding this:
Our regie's contact is a bit of an asxxxxx and now we're leaving the apartment he's complicating our lives. The last thing is he wants to run a preliminary etat de lieu for which he's fixed the appointment one month before we actually conclude our contract (3rd of Oct and we leave on 1st Nov).

Can this person actually do that? what do you think the reason behind is? I have had etat de lieu before in CH but never a preliminary one, have you?

Cheers!
Joga

I would guess they want to anticipate what kind of work may be required in the apartment. Why would you be against this?

It's also good because they'll tell you what you need to fix and you'll have time to do it at a reasonable cost, unlike on the official day when they may bill you 300 francs to replace a part worth 15...

Well, I don't know....they never had time to come over to fix things or even to pick up the phone when we call them and all of the sudden they have time to do a preliminary? I am probably being paranoid but...I just do not trust this country's rental agencies...

Good point! But I have never heard of this procedure before, have you?

Re: État de lieu PRELIMINAIRE

It is usual practice, and as people have mentioned before, it is also good for you.
Don't worry about them not picking up the phone etc, i have to say it is also very common. They are all so relaxed and lazy, they just don't care.
And it is very easy to understand why they want État de lieu - if they won't do it, potentially they risk having a flat that is not completely ok by the time you leave. And it may be not your fault, so they would have to spend few weeks to fix something and obviously they will have no money coming.
Nothing personal, only business
