Rent an apartment, rent a house in Geneva, Switzerland
Everyone, who was looking for an appartement or a house in Geneva, will tell you that it’s not a piece of cake. First of all, you have to find a desired property in Geneva, and afterwards, you have to submit all the documents to have a chance to move in. Why are we talking about chances? Because, quite often, the competition is very high and your candidate has to be approved and chosen by the owners among other candidates.
Gecofim is a real estate agency based in Geneva, Switzerland, that may help you in both cases. We will not only find you a house or an apartment of your dreams, but we will help you at every stage of negotiations with the owner, so you will know all the conditions before moving in. And even more, as in the majority of cases contracts and agreements are held in French, we provide you with qualified translation services, the price of which is included in the fees charged only in case of contract sign up.
Concerning the documents that might be requested by the Régie or the owners, you will need to provide a copy of a valid passport or any other document proving your identity, a proof of your financial status (3 last salary slips or your current contract if you have just started your career), and a non-poursuites paper that you may take here in Geneva at Rue du Stand 46 for 17/18 CHF, certifying that you have no debts or obligations. The last thing that you have to keep in mind as well, that there is a necessity of a deposit/guarantee for a chosen accommodation equal to 3 months of rent. Basically, if the apartment monthly rent is 2000 CHF, you will have to deposit 6000 CHF that will be returned after verification of the condition of an appartement or a house you lived in (called État des lieux).
Student? No problem!
Gecofim (gecofim.swiss) also helps students to rent an apartment or a house in Geneva. There is a possibility, if you can’t provide a working contract, to rent an apartment if you have a sufficient amount of money on your bank account (1 year guarantee). Thus, a monthly rent will be simply deducted from it every time. If you need to rent an apartment or to rent a house just for couple of months, you will need a guarantee exactly for that period.
Being a student is not easy as well, so Gecofim real estate agents will help you to find a furnished apartment. Just move in and concentrate on your studies and social life.
