Re: Nameplates- who pays?

Hang on, this is Switzerland... I think the landlord might mean "I will pay the supplier and send you a hugely inflated bill"

Something along these lines, yes...and what do you mean by hugely inflated? That's called the administrative cost for the "service" I've provided...afterall, this is Switzerland, where you get served without even knowing.

Re: Nameplates- who pays?

seems that it depends from landlord to landlord.

we've lived in two different apartments during our time here and both landlords paid for the name plates on our letter boxes and for our door bell. Although i have noticed that in our current block, not all name plates are uniform suggesting that the tenant has acquired it themselves.

Re: Nameplates- who pays?

I recently received two nameplates - one with incorrect name on it. I send it back and received it again in post yesterday

It's not their fault you can't spell "olive".

Re: Nameplates- who pays?

Same here, I had to pay for my nameplates. And again when I wanted to change the name on it. I guess the default is tenant pays unless the landlord says otherwise?
