Our frequently asked questions
Do I have to be present at the inventory?
The inventory allows you to record in writing the state of your new home. If you are unavailable, you must inform the Régie beforehand and submit a power of attorney to an adult of your choice with a copy of your identity document and all the documents requested when signing the lease so that we can hand over the keys to the property.
How do I provide a rent guarantee?
If you do not want to set aside a large amount of money in a bank account, it is possible to enter into a contract with companies that will guarantee your rent with the property management.
The guarantee companies will charge you a fixed amount in the first year, and a percentage of the amount to be guaranteed in subsequent years.
The companies offering such services in Switzerland are : SwissCaution, FirstCaution or SmartCaution. All have specific features, and the guarantees offered are not necessarily available in all cantons or communes.
