Swiss Renters Law Help?

Hi everyone,

Please can someone give me some advice?
I recently put a deposit down on a property in Zurich and but then got let down by a friend who was moving in with me so decided I could not afford the apartment by my-self. I contacted the landlord but he has told me that I am not entitled to my deposit back because as of Swiss law we had an agreement, so he would not be returning the money of CHF 4500.

No contract has been signed only agreement via emails.

Is this the law of Switzerland?

Many thanks in advance

David

are like a citizens advice bureau for all things relating to housing rental. one off 60CHF fee for their services, but the first consult is free and they will advise if they can help you to recover your deposit.
