Who is this service for?

This service is for you if:

  • You've found your perfect rental property
  • You want to increase your chances of getting the home you want by applying for the property correctly and by submitting your application through us
  • You want to ensure you understand the lease clauses presented to you

The benefits

In a competitive market, it is important for your application to be considered and placed at the top of the pile. There is only one chance to make a good first impression.

Your lease application needs to be drafted according to Swiss standards and with appropriate attachments and wording.

Leases in Switzerland need to comply with Cantonal Legal Terms which can be relatively complex. Some are negotiable and some are not. It is important to agree to terms that you are clear with.

Moving in
Accompanied Handover - up to 4 rooms

Packimpex
399.-

Who is this service for?

This service is for you if:

  • You're new to Switzerland and to the workings of the Swiss rental property market
  • You don't speak the local language yet want to be confident when communicating with the letting agent
  • You want to avoid potentially costly pitfalls, especially those which may arise from contractually binding agreements made at the handover

The benefits

To take over your Swiss rental property, you will be required to attend a formal entrance inspection and to sign documents prepared by the letting agent. At this stage, the presence of a consultant will be particularly helpful if you don't speak the local language or if you are uncertain about your rights and obligations as tenant in Switzerland.

A common mistake made at the signing stage is for new tenants to accidentally accept full liability for damages caused by previous tenants. Repair costs resulting from mistakes like this can be very expensive.

With the Accompanied Handover service, our relocation consultants ensure you get off to the best possible start in your new home. You will:

  • Avoid potentially costly pitfalls. It will also save you stress and time. You can settle into your new home with total peace of mind.
  • Understand your rights as tenant and obligations during the tenancy - what maintenance is your responsibility, and where and how to contact the agency to ensure you are not liable for further damages.
  • Get off to a good start with your tenancy and improve your communication with your landlord/agent.
  • Be ready and compliant with standard practice to reduce issues and costs at the time of property handback when you decide to move.

What you get

  • Personally accompany you to the property handover.
  • Facilitate any communication between you and the property owner, landlord or letting agent during your property handover.
  • Provide a detailed record of the property inspection.
