yes exactly. we were never a couple. and as I have stated he has unoficially moved in. To clarify this, he is a swiss guy who owns an apartment in Lucerne and most of his belongings are there. But since his GF is in Zurich he is pretty much here all the time and sleeps here. He only goes back if he needs access to his belongings and to pick up his mail.

I would try to talk to him because he is actually a very reasonable guy, but I can never catch him on his own. With her and her short temper present the conversation would be counter-productive.
Sleep with him. Let her kick him out.

Re: 2 person rental agreement and other party refuses to sign termination

Hi, I'm in a similar situation as the OP.

My question is, until when I have to keep paying the rent if the other tenant doesn't want to terminate the contract?

See the post from Ziger above. You can't simply stop paying (no matter how long it's been); you have to reach some arrangement with the other tenant, either privately or by going to court.

Re: 2 person rental agreement and other party refuses to sign termination

Im afraid if they dont sign you may need to get a court order. I was lucky enough to escape that in my situation, but I hear the courts in these cases act relatively swiftly.

Instead however my former flatmate is giving me all sorts of other grief relating to handover and deposits etc.

Trust me I know exactly how much a bitch it is...

Thanks for the replies. It is for sure the last time I sign a contract like this, I feel completely trapped!
