Family asked for CHF 27k for flat deposit
A family in Zurich is in shock after they were asked for a deposit of CHF 27,000 to secure a modest 70m2 apartment.
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.
