Moving Dates

Hello

Is it possible to change a moving date once you have agreed this with the landlord?

Thanks

Sharon

Re: Moving Dates

Ask the person with whom you agreed it.

Re: Moving Dates

More information required. Agreement for what. Moving in, or moving out ? Contract signed or official notice given ? Witnesses to agreement, or agreement in writing, or hearsay ?

Generally it's OK to move outside of the moving dates provided you find someone to take over the contract.

Some agencies will allow you to

1) give written notice
2) find someone to take your place
3) help you find someone
4) if you don't find someone, you pay the rent until someone is found

Re: Moving Dates

OK we have bought an appartment and have given notice for the people to move out - they came back asking if this could be 2 months instead of 3 and asked for us to confirm this by e-mail. We did this and have given notice on where we are staying now. They have since come back and said that the appartment fell though and they want to go back to the original 3 months but that doesn't suit us as we have to move now (we wouldn't have given notice if they hadn't asked us to agree to them moving earlier)

Re: Moving Dates

The normal (legal) notice period in Zurich is 3 months, for the end of March and the end of September. If you gave notice at the end of June you would still be obliged to pay rent until the end of September or to alternatively find new tenant. So unless the landlord has already signed a contract with a new tenant, I do not think that it should be a problem to keep the apartment until the end of September. So better talk to the landlord.
