General terms and conditions

1. Entry into force of contract and payment conditions

The contract between the tenant and landlord shall enter into force once the landlord has received the contract signed by the tenant. The amount of the deposit and the balance are stated in the contract. If the landlord has not received the signed contract or the deposit on the agreed date, the landlord may make other use of the property without further notification or obligation to pay compensation.

2. Costs

Some costs, such as electricity and heating, are included in the rent.
Costs calculated at the end of the rental period are not included in the rent and must be paid before departure (mandatory final cleaning, use of the washing machine and/or dryer and tourist taxes).


3. Property handover and complaints

The property is handed over to the tenant in a clean condition as stated in the contract. If damage is noted at handover or if the inventory is incomplete, the tenant must immediately inform the keyholder/landlord. Otherwise the property will be deemed to have been handed over in perfect condition. If the tenant occupies the property late or does not occupy the property at all, the full rental payment shall remain due.


4. Conditions of use

The tenant must treat the property with care, comply with the rules of the apartment and be considerate towards other occupants of the building and neighbours.

The keyholder/landlord must be informed immediately of any damage.

The property may only be occupied by up to the maximum number of people specified in the rental contract. Subletting is not permitted.

The tenant must ensure that his co-tenants adhere to these terms and conditions. If the tenant or a co-tenant clearly breaches the duty of care in using the property or if the property is occupied by more persons than the maximum number of occupants contractually agreed, the keyholder/landlord may terminate the rental contract without notice or compensation.


5. Return of the property

At the end of the rental contract, the property must be returned in perfect condition and in accordance with the departure inventory. The tenant must pay for any damage and items missing from the inventory.


6. Cancellation

The tenant may terminate the contract at any time under the following conditions:

  • Up to 60 days before arrival: CHF 100 administration fee.

  • Up to 30 days before arrival: 75% of the deposit forfeited.

  • After this time, the entire sum payable for the booking is due.

Replacement tenant: the tenant has the right to suggest a replacement tenant. The replacement tenant must be considered acceptable by the landlord and must be solvent. The replacement tenant shall take over the contract under the same terms and conditions. The tenant and replacement tenant are jointly and severally liable for payment of the rent.

Cancellation fees are calculated from the date that the landlord receives the cancellation notice. If this date is on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the date is considered to be the next working day.
If the rental is ended before the agreed date, the full rental payment is due.


7. Force majeure, etc.

If force majeure (natural disasters, acts of god, action taken by the authorities, etc.) or unforeseeable or unavoidable events prevent the rental from taking place or continuing, the landlord may (without obligation) offer the tenant a similar property to the exclusion of any further claims. If the accommodation cannot be provided, in whole or in part, the sum paid or the appropriate portion of this will be reimbursed, to the exclusion of any further claims.


8. Liability

The landlord is responsible for the reservation and the proper execution of the contract. In the event of damage caused other than to persons, liability is limited to a maximum of double the total sum of the rent, on condition that gross negligence or an intentional act can be proven. Liability shall be excluded for any breach by the tenant or a co-tenant, for any foreseeable or unavoidable breach by a third party, for any instance of force majeure or for any event that the landlord, keyholder, intermediary or any other person involved by the landlord could not foresee or avoid despite taking due care.

The tenant is liable for any damage caused by himself or by co-tenants. Liability is presumed.


9. Applicable law and jurisdiction

Swiss law applies. The sole competent jurisdiction is that of the property's location.
