Changing appartments

Most contacts have at least 3 month notice. Why most of the ads are immediate or just a month in advance?
What is the recommeded process here? Would you first find new place and then give notice and start looking for replacement because most likely you will have just one month before starting paying for new place? Or give 3 month notice and then start looking with the hope you’ll find something suitable clother to move deadline?
What is actually more easy? Finding appartment or finding replacement tenant?
All is for appartments around Zurich but not Zurich itself. Thanks for you soughts.

Re: Changing appartments

In Zurich and arround Zurich it is very difficult to find fast a new flat.

To your questions:
Most contracts have at least 3 month notice -> yes thats true, but you can terminate your contract always every month by end of the month. The only difference is if you do that, than you have to find solvent next tenants for your flat. In the case you terminate 3 months before, you don't have to find a new tenant, than the housing administration or house owner is obligated to do. = mostly if you see immiadate or just a month means that current tenant searching for a next tenant because he didn't terminate 3 months before.

So what you need to ask yourself, is your current flat good and good located that you will find within 1-2 weeks a next tenant? if yes, than you can search first for a new flat and afterwards you terminate your current flat. If is your current flat not famous than I would first find a new flat, terminate your current flat with a 3 months notice (that you don't have to pay two flats for 1-2 months, you always have the possibility to find a next tenant which would take over your flat before this 3 months ends).

Hope my explanation was clear.
