Re: Next action on multiple remainders

Have you asked the old regie if they have forwarded the May payment to the new regie?

I dont understand why you choose to live in anxiety when Asloca is just one phone call away.
Regardless of your feelings towards them, they are the once who can help you.

Re: Next action on multiple remainders

I have been involved in multiple lawsuits with landlords over many years, usually due to them not reducing my rent or refusing to do repairs in the appartement.


If there is any doubt in good and friendly relationship between you and landlord then always communicate with your landlord via registered mail.


Never ever rely on calls, eMails or alike. Those types of contact leave no legal trace and while court will look at them they will not consider them binding.



In your case, I would send a registered letters to both your old and new regie with printout of payments and demand from them that they sort it out between themselves and stop bothering you.


You do not need to be worried about this situation, there is no way they can kick you out if you executed all payments on time and have bank confirmations to that.


If they attempt to evict you: You dispute the eviction notice with local "Schlichtungsstelle", you will win for sure AND you will be protected from eviction for the next 3 years as a bonus.


Don't worry, while tenant protection laws in Switzerland are not as good as in Germany they are still solid and you cannot be kicked around without a reason.

Re: Next action on multiple remainders

Thank you all.

I still cannot get anyone on the phone from the "accounting department" of the regie. Apparently they outsourced accounting to another entity, which is the one sending to me the letters.

I just checked on my side. We have received the notification of the change of the regie on May 29th (on May, 28th i paid the June rent). The payment made on Jun, 26th - referred to the month of July - has been sent to the new regie.

I have extracted all the receipts of the payments and we are sending them this week via registered mail. As you are suggesting, we will explore deeper the option of paying on an escrow account before taking any action on that side.

Did this letter on May 29 state "with effect from 1 June"? Normally one would expect a bit longer notice than that.

Absolutely.
Given that May 29th was actually a Friday it is totally normal that the OP would have already made the payment by then otherwise it would have been late.

The OP is not to blame here and the régies really need to get their act together.
