Apartment without job

I will be relocating to the canton Vaud and am looking for apartments. Is it impossible to find an apartment without a firm offer of a job? I have heard that sometimes they will phone my bank to see if I'm solvent? I have dual Swiss\uk nationality.

Re: Apartment without job

This is completely up to the landlord and how much money you actually have.

Unless you are very wealthy, in most cases you will be rejected. But not always. You need to find a landlord who will be ok with this. The choice will likely be over priced or temporary furnished apartments.

Copies of bank statements usually suffice. Proof of income would include paychecks.

The bank would just tell them to f**k off. Even confirming the existence of an account without your consent would be a serious breach of bank secrecy, potentially criminally prosecutable

Re: Apartment without job

Following documents might help you to convince your prospective landlords
1. Demande d'extrait du registre des poursuites (https://www.e-service.admin.ch/eschk...gsauskunft_fr/)
2. Bank statement
3. Letter of recommendation from your previous landlord if possible
