Moving to new flat + Swiss customs

I handed over the keys to the agency (and new tenant simultaneously) middle of the month, and the agency paid me back half of the month that I paid for fully.
The new tenant paid half of the rent too, for ‘his’ period.

I think it’s only fair to use the key holding period == rent paying period as a rule.
If in the meantime between 2 tenants the agency does renovations - it should be on them to cover that period, not any of the 2 transitioning tenants.

My 2c.


I agree, but that has always been the case for me. I’ve always hade to hand over the flat 2-3 days before the end of the month.
