If you leave a tenancy before the due term....

hi there,

My apologies of this question has been asked before.
But i think it's an important point and perhaps deserves re-airing.

I would like to know what happens when... you take a tenancy,
for say 6 months, but then you realise ... 3 months later...
that you want to go and live somewhere else.

If you exit at this point... I'm guessing the landlord/landlady can/will
keep your deposit. My question is: Can the landlord/landlady pursue
you for the unpaid months through the debt office, the Betriebungsamt ?

I'm guessing, but only guessing, that the answer is yes. Does anyone
have any experience of this situation ? Or know definitively ?

Thanks to anyone that replies :-)

Do a forum search on this, please.

There is tons of info on here about "early termination of apartment lease" already - in fact there's a thread with precisely that title which should answer what you are asking.

In general , they'll screw you to the wall as as Switzerland is so small and incestuous, it will come back and bite you in the ass at a later date.

You signed a contract, the landlords honours his side, you honour your side; The benefit is, you can look at yourself in the mirror each day without having to think "what a shit i am"

What's with all the grumpies today? I have a headache and I can still be nice (ish):

Zurich- rental notice rules?

PS - Search box is in the upper right corner of your screen and you'll have better luck if you try the google-powered one and stick to keywords instead of phrases.

Perhaps because I've (along with other EFers) given lots and lots of info on the subject already and there is no hint of it having been searched for before starting a new thread on the subject.
OP asked nicely though, so I hinted at the existing thread which you linked to.

Sincerely Grouch Jupiter


OP, the links given by 3W should cover everything you need to know.

To be fair, if the OP had only searched for the word "tenancy" then none of the threads I linked would have shown up (I just checked). That's been remedied now as I have added tags to those threads.

Thanks! Can mere mortals (non-mods) ad tags as well?

You can definitely add tags to any thread you start. As for others, give it a try. I have no idea.
