Certificate of Garanty?

Does anyone know what a "certificate of garanty" is in relation to renting an apartment? It says in brackets that it is equivalent to two months of rent.

Is it the same as a deposit account? (and does all banks take a fee of 50CHF to cancel such accounts?

Sign up with www.swisscaution.ch you pay 100 a year and they pay your deposit. That way your money is not tied up. Nothing else to do

Not quite, but fortunately the web site is in English. It's 5% of the total guarantee amount (usualy 2 or 3 months rent) + Sfr 20.-- and then there is 5% of the total amount added on to cover Federal stamp duty.

What I was trying to show was that your money doesnt get tied up like a lump some with a bank and you only pay an annual one off fee which is really nothing ... I think it was that amount for me as also as I added the RC also so all was sorted. Cool.
