Lodging laws

Comfort apart, are there any 'laws' on how many people can stay, in say a 1.5 room flat. When I was in a student home in FMEL last summer, for example, we were told not to entertain any night guests.

Also, if I already have a flat where I stay, then how could (in terms of procedures with the Canton office) a friend of mine start living with me.

Many thanks!

Re: Lodging laws

Thank you Marie for your reply.

Is there any general guideline on how big a flat for 2 people should be?

Re: Lodging laws

The general rule at least in Bern, is that there should always be one more room than there are people. So in a 1.5 there shouldn't actually be more than 1 person so a flat for 2 people should be 3 rooms (2 bedroom) but how strict the rules are really depends on the building, landlord and so on.
