Accommodation in Switzerland: scams you should look out for


Committing to renting or buying accommodation when you’re new to or have not moved to Switzerland just yet is always a stressful endeavour. Would you like to help us in putting together a handbook of what to look out for when house hunting in Switzerland?

What are the most common scams in Switzerland?

What are the red flags to look out for when scanning through adverts?

Is there a list of registered or accredited landlords or real estate agencies in Switzerland?

What authorities should be sought should one come across an accommodation scam?

Please share your experience,
