contract and possibilities

Hi,

I signed a contract for an apartment from a real estate agency. The rent will start next month (April). I have already paid the deposit and the first month of rent.

Unfortunately, in the meantime I have lost my job and I am relocating abroad.

I have talked to the real estate agency. They said I could find a new tenant starting from May. The new tenant could sign a new contract with them and I would only have to pay 400 CHF of fine.

My question is: would it be illegal to find a new tenant starting from April rather than from May?

Thank you.

Re: contract and possibilities

You can find a tenant from any day you want, why could it possibly be illegal?

I am not sure why the real estate agency insisted I can find a new tenant starting from May...

Maybe they are doing you a favour giving you an extended period to find a tenant, plus you mentioned you had already paid the first month (April).

Ok. Does that mean I can't sublet for April?

Or maybe I can but all the responsibility is mine? E.g. If the tenant sets a fire and destroys everything.

Any suggestions with that? Open a contract with the insurance for just a month?
