Hope you find a way.

I know it is too late for you - but let this be a warning to others that sub-letting is no easy matter in CH - and that if you do, you have to be extremely cautious and know how to proceed. Again, and again, we read here about people who sign contracts, etc, without understanding Swiss law, etc and then end up in real trouble. Renting in CH is a different ball game to anywhere else I know off, and sub-letting is a minefield.
could'nt have been said any better. All of it.

These kind of post amazes me, even as a newbie. People do all kind of funny, stupid and irresponsible mistakes and

Coming back to your problem, get the contract the receipt of the cash you
I know you will do all these, but I am sure that guy who managed to get the cash out of you without a joint name, not anyone else (like verwaltung) knowing about it and is been giving you all kind of bullshit about buying apartment etc is a not as naive as you. Do the best you can in the given circumstances. Try not to screw up the relationship without making sure he s surely not giving you your money back. Good luck buddy..
He's not naive. He is a veteran.

Even through reputable companies, it can take weeks and weeks to get your deposit back

sometimes damage done in the flat does not become apparent until 30 days after the new tenant has moved in, if it is not reported within the 30 days then the "problem" is then for the new tenant

I would send him a registered letter asking when the appartment will be evaluated and deposit returned. Yes, you have made mistakes but your contract and receipt should be enough to prove that he owes you the money.

Wait for his written reply and give him time to keep to his word. It does sound as if it was processed wron, but this doesnt mean he is a con-man. Just give it time

......getting your deposit back right away is almost unheard of.
No, it is not. I act on my client's behalf at handovers and I had a client receive their deposit back in full the next day but in most cases it has taken several days to process the paperwork and the full deposit was returned.
