Timelines for Apartment deposit refund

Hi there,

Any idea about the timelines (days / months / years ) for getting back the apartment deposit from Agency ?
One of my friend is who is waiting for his apartment deposit from last 10 months. He already left switzerland and following up with agency from US. Somehow agency commits certain timeline and again postpone it.
What should he do ? Pl suggest.
Thanks.

iirc he'll automatically get it back after 12 months if the agency has given no good reason why not.

wait out the remaining 2 months. Then update us on what happened and we will suggest what to do then.

Yep, if the deposit hasn't been returned after 12 months and the landlord or agency hasn't been to mediation or given a good reason why (part of) the deposit should not be returned, you should be able to contact the bank holding the deposit surety account and demand its release (IIRC) - I imagine you'd need to provide all relevant paperwork e.g. copy of the registered letter terminating the lease etc
