Rental agreement ending Monday July 31?

Is it possible for a tenancy agreement to end on Monday July 31st when the next day is a national holiday (Aug. 1.)?

Sure, why not?

The 31st isn't a holiday, the day after doesn't matter.

Why would you care, given you're still living in Oakland US according to your profile.

Ummm.. yes? If it ends end of July, that's 31st of July..

But don't forget that Swiss NEVER mind to talk about something. You want to stay till the 2nd of August? Maybe the new renter will only move into it on Friday (4th August) - and you can stay till then..

Or maybe they wouldn't mind moving in the weekend earlier, but you wouldn't have to clean the flat because of that (jackpot!) - go ahead and ask, use your mouth!

Re: Rental agreement ending Monday July 31?

My tenants have lived in our property for 8 years. We are getting ready for early retirement, moving back, providing somewhere for our boomerang daughter, who is at present dependent upon us, while she follows her pursuit to be a music producer. 😖 Actually she's very talented. I will post her music on The YouTube thread.

We have two alternatives:
1 Move back ourselves.
2 Let her live there

So I wanted to check on our house which we haven't seen for about 8 years.
The tenant pays about CHF1000 under the market rate but seems happy and by all accounts from neighbors takes good care of the garden.

The tenant has always been difficult to get hold of, but even more so recently.
Particularly he does not answer me promptly, perhaps because I am a woman.
I tried emailing for me to visit the house, but he replied that he cannot confirm an August appointment for me to visit until he returns from his holiday after Easter. He does not answer his phone. This is a little frustrating for me as I need to know now to book flights/plan my schedule to coordinate with a visit/wedding in the UK.
So I thought I may as well give him 3 months notice, but that means he moves out on July 31, which is kind of mean of me, but since he won't answer my emails and calls maybe that's what I will have to do!
July 31st is also when my daughter needs to find a job to support herself. Living in the Bay Area, striving to be a music producer, while.working P/T is not easy, she is quadralingual, double degree, accountancy, housing management, governmental office management experience, so would probably make more money in CH.

Re: Rental agreement ending Monday July 31?

Does your rental contract with him actually allow notification for end of July? I ask because many rental contracts are tied to specific cantonal moving dates: 31st March, 30th June and 30th September. If so, then you'd have to give him notice for end of September instead as you've missed the June notification deadline.

I was wondering about this, I think not because we are on a month to month contract.
I will not relet, too much hassle for no profit when living in the US. Tenants that are getting really low rent and insist on having the latest appliances like a steam oven.
If my daughter moved and needs to make money she can let rooms out if she wants; it's a small 1996 upgraded 4 bedroom. So easy for her to let while studying in St Gallen or working in Zurich.

Re: Rental agreement ending Monday July 31?

Why shouldn't it be possible? July 31 is a normal business/working day like any other. Just because August 1 happens to fall on a Tuesday this year - with many going for long weekends - doesn't change that.

There's an apartment a few doors down from ours on Comparis, with a tenancy end date of 31st December, so yes.
