GENEVA accomodation


We are a couple looking for a flat in Geneva. We will also be looking for work during that time. So far the rentees are asking for a payslip to confirm employment which is a problem. The other possibility are hostels.

Any advice on the above would be appreciated as we're going round in circles at the moment.

It's as hard as renting in Toulouse.

No payroll or sponsor, no possibility to rent.

Plus, there is a huge crisis in the sense that there is a shortage in appartements to let or to sell. There is according to some official figures a shortage of minimum 20 000 appartement compared to the actual demand.

Good luck.

Dear Tunneller,

Please kindly refer to the following for all info re house hunting and temporary accommodation:




With regard to the payslip situation, real estate agencies will ask for any form of revenue guarantee. If you can show them one way or another that you are receving some form of revenue or that your personal fortune is sufficient to cover x months of rent, they should accept that.

Good luck.
