Moving within Switzerland - who to tell?

My wife is moving residence from one Gemeinde to another, still within the same canton.

She obviously has to register in the new one, but does she also have to de-register in the old?

Apologies if this has been up before, but I could not find anything.

Re: Moving within Switzerland - who to tell?

You just have to look up the stuff in the Stickies in the most likely places.

If you link your way through

'Housing in General' > 'FAQs - you SURE your question/problem/requirement is unique? Look here before asking' > 'Sites with Basic information about renting accommodation in Switzerland' > 'The Swiss Portal – Housing and Moving Home' > you'll find this link.

Yes.

You first de-register, then register.

Re: Moving within Switzerland - who to tell?

Ah well, another attempt to help people to find information on here for themselves down the drain. I don't know why I bother sometimes. Wish I could bring myself to groan or give bad rep but it goes against the grain.
"...he was trying to help..." is cold comfort.

Thank you Longbyt - in my head it was about dealing with government rather than renting accommodation, but there you go :-)

Re: Moving within Switzerland - who to tell?

I see your point absolutely and I try to interlink the stuff but basically it's one of the things you do when moving - there are a couple of checklists in the sites given with other helpful tips too. It's so easy to forget something. Hope the move goes well.

Re: Moving within Switzerland - who to tell?

I have never formally deregistered when moving - only registered at the new place - they appear to work it backwards. Sure enough got a bit of a verbal ticking off once or twice .

This applies between kantons and between gemeindes.

Caveat: I'm not suggesting you try this - it works for me but maybe I've just been lucky .
