Charging of Fees to Rent an Apartment in Geneva

Hi All,

We are moving to Geneva shortly. We have a relocation agent based in Lausanne, and we have a contract with him to pay his fees even though we are the ones to search, find and visit (alone) all apartments in Geneva.

My husband found an acceptable apartment for us in Geneva and the agent who showed him the apartment told him that they normally charge a fee equal to one months rent (this is more than we will pay our relocation agent) for finding the apartment and doing the paperwork. We found the apartment listed on Homegate.

Is this normal practice? In every other country I have lived, all fees related to tenants are paid by the owner.
