What is the minimum amount of time you're usually expected to stay in an apartment?

The only info I can find about moving out is the typical dates, i.e., July 1st and January 1st for Zurich for instance. Is that the only condition there is, or are you supposed to stay in your apartment for a minimum amount of time usually? As in, if you moved in on July 1st, can you directly move out on January 1st on the next year or is 6 months too short? Does it depend on your contract? Do contracts have a typical minimum duration?

If you want the bother of having to nitty gritty clean your apartment you can move as often as you want. And check your rental contract, not all have those limited clauses (I can move out with 3 months notice, just not in December).

Longer leases seem to be common around here. Not sure about elsewhere in Switzerland. Minimum one year seems common. Landlords want someone who will stick around and pay the bills. I heard that when our building was first built, everyone had to sign a 5-year lease.
