Apartment with/without Garage

Hey guys,

Quick question, is it better to take an apartment that offers a garage with the apartment despite the fact I don't drive nor own a car OR should I say I don't want it? Just wondering if it will hinder my application chances.

Say you don't want it, someone else will rent it.

Thanks, I was concerned they may not consider me because of it.

Re: Apartment with/without Garage

My apartment rents the flat and the garage separately. I actually have separate contracts for each. Don't know if this is how everywhere is.

Re: Apartment with/without Garage

That's comforting, now I am just wondering but is it better to deliver the documents by hand or use postal service? I refer hand is Zurich is small but I wonder what their preference is.

Re: Apartment with/without Garage

Post will only delay your application. I say, hand them in in person or email them.
Also, we've been rejected for not taking a garage, even though the regie said face-to-face that it was not a problem (but they later told my reference it was actually a problem).
