Can one rent two apartments in switzerland??

Hi,

This is a random question. I think my chances of getting a rental contract are very low, phd student from U.S. on an internship here, with no swiss contract, and a limited permit B. I keep extending my internship every 4-5 months, I get paid by UCLA in U.S.

So basically I doubt I would be able to rent an apartment very easily. My boyfriend on the other hand has a 5 yr permit B and a work contract and has worked here for longer than 3 months.

We're both looking for apartments now, and I was wondering if anyone knows if he can rent both apartments for us. When they do the credit check will they know he has another apartment rented somewhere else, will it affect his chances of getting an apartment, or would they not know about the other place? We're in Lausanne (VD).

I appreciate your response,

Dorna

You are allowed to rent as many apartments as you want, provided you can pay for it

I know several people who do weekly commutes from one part of CH to another and have apartments in both.

Logically speaking, it should not be a problem, provided that rent for both the apartment is paid on time.

Thanks!

Do you guys know if they'll know he's applied for the other flat as well? I want to know if it'll affect his chances in any way, or neither of us will get an apartment!!
