Rental Contract Question - Three Months Notice For End of One Year?

Hi,

I apologize if this is answered elsewhere, but I could not find the exact answer. I signed a contract for my apartment for Dec 1, 2006 with a realtor in Lausanne and now have found a great apt for Dec 1 of this year just today. Am I able to give notice now that I want out of my contract at the end of this month since it's the end of one year, or would I still need to give three months? Under "Resiliation" on the contract, it says 3 mois d'avance pour fin de chaque mois (sauf decembre). Does that mean I can opt out for the start of next month?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

You need to give three months notice. If the end of your third month is December then it goes through to January.

Landlords are usually easy if you find someone to take over your lease, saving them the leg work. This may be an option to get out early.

Thanks. Just after I posted, I realized that we had an open-ended contract. I was too used to North American style one year leases. I appreciate the advice...we are going to try and find someone to take over our lease.

Much appreciated.

What is the best way to find a new tenant? A friend of mine needs to let go off his apartment in Canton Schwyz and he has a lease until June 2012. Where can one place an add? Is it a good idea to go to real estate agents? How much would they charge?

is there is place here to place an add for an apartment rental? Thanks

Yes, there is. I'll let you have the fun of finding it though. (Hint: go to the list of subforums and scroll down...)

Your friend would have to be an EF member with a few posts to his name - see the sticky thread in the top of the Adverts for Housing subforum (when you do find it) for more info.

People here are constantly asking about flats in Lausanne- so you might get lucky here. Give exact location and size, rental price, and most importantly PHOTOS.

Give the town, the road, and state Canton Schwyz in the advert.
