Subletting, any experiences!

Does anyone have any experience with subletting here? I am leaving prospectively in January 2010 for approximately a year, hopefully longer, and am thinking it might be a good idea to initially sublet my flat until I make a final decision. The landlord has no problems and said I just need to inform him 6 weeks ahead of time so we can draw up a contract.
As I am planning to leave the flat partially furnished, are there any particular clauses I need to add in regard to my stuff or is it just "I hope you don't damage anything horribly"? What about insurance? Does this fall on the subletter?

Re: Subletting, any experiences!

We are currently moving house and when we dealt with people subletting their apartments, they actually added an extra amount to the monthly rent for using of the furniture. If you care about your furniture, you may want to add it to the inventory so you can check if there has been any damage during the rental period. The damage should be covered by the deposit.

Check out a publication by "ASLOCA" in the library or give them a call, can't remember the number I think they're in Eaux Vives in Geneva - the women was pretty unhelpful when I called her ( I'm not selling it ... ) but these are guys who do all the subletting standard so the publication could be useful when setting up a contract. Subletting is so much more easy than dealing with Regies !

I think you can add 25% to the rent on a furnished apartment when you sublet it out ...
