The process of house hunting

hello

I am just struggling for the process pf house hunting.A lot of question keeps on coming up,if someone can help would be great...

1. Once we see an apartment and the person gives us an Application of prospective Tenant what should we do?
2. What documents should we attached with the Application of prospective Tenant?
3. How many days should we wait for the reply?
4. If our application is rejected do they let us know that it has been rejected?
5. On the Application of prospective Tenant there is a question which say
Mietzins Fr(Monthly rent) are we suppose to quote our price or the price give on the website or by Tenant?
6. Can we negotiate on the rent?
7. Can we tell the we can not pay 3 months deposit but can pay for 2 months?

In case I need more help will write again

Thanx in advance
Newtob

1. Once we see an apartment and the person gives us an Application of prospective Tenant what should we do?

Duh. Fill it in if you like the apartment. Chuck it if you dont think its for you.


2. What documents should we attached with the Application of prospective Tenant?

Your resident permit, employment contract and a letter from your kreisburo stating that you have no outstanding debts lodged against you. You can get the letter for 17 CHF (I think) from the kreisburo.

3. How many days should we wait for the reply?

It depends. I got my answer in two.

4. If our application is rejected do they let us know that it has been rejected?

Sometimes not. You'll have to be aggressive in following up if you like the apartment.

5. On the Application of prospective Tenant there is a question which say
Mietzins Fr(Monthly rent) are we suppose to quote our price or the price give on the website or by Tenant?

The latter

6. Can we negotiate on the rent?

Not the normal practice.

7. Can we tell the we can not pay 3 months deposit but can pay for 2 months?

Depends on the landlord's requirements. If you dont want to pay 3 months that he's asking for, he will give the apartment to the next person who is willing.

In case I need more help will write again

Thanx in advance
