The mother of three is looking for a flat with more bedrooms as her children grow older. She thought she’d found the ideal home for CHF 3,000 a month.

The family were also asked for reams of paperwork to secure the property.

Unusually the money was to be paid into the landlord’s bank account and not into a blocked account which is more normal.
