Ticino Lugano - Unfair Landlord Practice

Looks like I am another one of the victims of Swiss Landlord fraud - what a horrible experience!!!

After 6 months of waiting on my deposit, he has come back alleging that "cleaning supplies" will cost him 1100 chf... Luckily I took photos of my spotless move-out AFTER hours of cleaning **and** BEFORE my initial move-in, so I have it to compare!

Nonetheless, this has been a nightmare!

I'm wondering if any of you in Ticino / Lugano area have used the ASI Renter's Association service and found them helpful?

Re: Ticino Lugano - Unfair Landlord Practice

I have used them, they are good at advsing you on your rights and the facts, also they will help you prepare formal letters of complaint etc and advise on action. However, for anything stronger you may need to go to an appeals board, they can give you more details.

Good luck!
