ZKB Kaution IBAN account

Hello everybody!


First thanks for this forum it's an incredible source of information!


Then here's my situation. I am to move to zurich next week, my girlfriend already lives here and I visited Zurich 2 weeks ago to find an apartment with her. We were successful and were offered an apartment.


The renting agency offered us to send the caution on the property owner account as we put a very tight schedule on when to move in (less than a week) and then move the money to the ZKB caution account when it would be opened. I was not very confident sending money over to an unknown person account therefore I asked if we could move the move in date and wait for the ZKB account to open. They accepted which comforted me in the fact that it was not a scam.


The problem is that the ZKB sent the papers to my girlfriend (in switzerland) and we only received an account number at ZKB, no IBAN whatsoever for me to send the money on.


Do you know how can I send money to a number account at ZKB without and IBAN ? How could I get the IBAN for the account ?


Thanks in advance!
