Problems paying rent

If you experience financial difficulties, inform your landlord in good time. Local authorities can provide financial assistance; contact their social or housing services as soon as possible.

Please note!
If a tenant pays rent late, or does not pay at all, the owner has the right to terminate the lease after one reminder and to evict the tenant concerned at short notice.
 
In the event of an irresolvable dispute between tenants and landlords, you can seek neutral mediation from the local canton’s arbitration authority.
