delivered warnings, observing a period of three months, with the consequence that the
tenant is obliged to give up animal husbandry in the rented property.

the damage caused by the animals in question. This also applies to water damage to
aquariums. At the Lessor's request, the Lessee is obliged to document the conclusion of the
corresponding insurance policy and the uninterrupted premium payments.
12 Contracts with minimum duration/term contracts
If the tenancy agreement is concluded for a period of at least five years or at least
unilaterally non-cancellable for the landlord for at least five years, the rent is deemed to be

index according to the following formula.
(New Index - Old Index) / Old Index * 100

days of receipt of the invoice. Additional claims or refunds must be paid within 30 days of

If the lessee requests to inspect the documents within these 30 days, the 30-day period only
begins after he has inspected all relevant documents.
C. Heating and hot water
Heating and hot water costs are invoiced according to a special distribution key. No
reduction in heating costs can be granted for radiators throttled by the tenant. The

tenant who is otherwise to be regarded as reasonably solvent can also be rejected without
the tenant being released from liability if, in the opinion of the landlord, he does not
correspond to the tenant structure of the rented property or if he intends to occupy the
rented property with more persons than the tenant. The conclusion of the rental contract is
the exclusive responsibility of the lessor. If it is certain that the tenant cannot or will not
offer a substitute tenant within the meaning of the law, the landlord must also endeavour to
re-let the property prematurely as part of his duty to minimize the damage. The costs for
necessary additional activities of the landlord (e.g. insertion costs) are to be borne by the

desired move-out date by registered letter and at least 14 days in advance.

or changes resulting from the contractual use as well as the condition at the start of the
rental period. Unless otherwise agreed, the return of the fully cleared and thoroughly
cleaned rental property with all keys will take place according to local usage, but at the latest

contractual penalty of CHF 250 per commenced day. Payment of the contractual penalty
does not release the customer from the obligation to return the object at the agreed time.
We reserve the right to assert further claims for damages. The respective beginning of a new
day is 12.00 o'clock (noon).
Unless expressly agreed otherwise with the Lessor, the repair and cleaning work to be
carried out by the Lessee must be carried out professionally and completed by the time of
handover. If this work is not completed on time, the lessor is not obliged to set a grace
period. The lessor may have the defective work carried out by a specialist of his choice and
at the expense of the lessee.
In any case, when the rented property is returned, all personal belongings, other than those
belonging to the property or its furnishings, must be removed from both the private and
communal premises. Personal belongings that have not been removed become the property
of the lessor when the keys are handed over. The Lessor may arrange for the removal and
disposal of these objects at the expense of the Lessee or for their recycling.

the rental property.

condition of the leased property and the inventory are recorded. This return protocol is sent
to the tenant for signature and comment. If the tenant does not take a position within a
period of 14 days from delivery of the protocol, he accepts the handover protocol tacitly.
If the tenant wishes a personal examination instead of the return protocol provided by the
landlord, then he is entitled to read at his expense for the preservation of evidence an
official finding. For his part, the landlord may have an official finding recorded for the
purpose of preserving evidence. If the officially determined defects and outstanding claims
exceed the amount of CHF 1,000, the lessee shall bear the costs for the preparation of the
report, otherwise the costs for the official report shall be borne by the lessor.
The landlord can arrange a personal delivery. On the occasion of the return of the rented
property, the tenant and the landlord shall draw up a return protocol in which the condition
of the rented property is recorded. If the tenant is not willing to cooperate in a proper return
of the rented property, the landlord is entitled, at the expense of the tenant, to have an
official report recorded to preserve evidence.

the part of the tenant. Excluded from this are dates which are postponed or cancelled in
writing at least 24 hours before the date.

notified in writing another place of delivery.

partnership. The responsible offices are hereby expressly authorised to provide information.
18 Violation of tenancy agreement / house rules / community rules
House and laundry room rules as well as the Community Rules are an integral part. If the
tenancy agreement and/or house rules are repeatedly violated and the written reminder
remains unsuccessful within the period set by the landlord, this can lead to an extraordinary
termination with a notice period of 30 days to the end of a month in accordance with Art.
257f Para. 3 OR.
19 Dunning collection charges
The tenant acknowledges interest on arrears at 5% for late payments of rent and ancillary
costs, as well as reminder and handling fees of CHF 40 per reminder. The lessee is liable for
all further costs incurred by the lessor due to late payments.

jurisdiction for all disputes is the location of the rented object.
