Solvency is defined as the capability of the tenant during the whole duration of the tenancy to assume the regular payment of the rents and charges. If you have no revenue, a guarantor, resident in Switzerland and solvent, is necessary. The latter has to supply all the required documents stipulated in the rental request. He will be the holder of the lease, the student being his sub-tenant. If you are of foreign nationality, you will have to supply a copy of your stay permit. In case you are waiting for the said document, we will base on the matriculation, prematriculation form or on the letter of acceptance of the EPFL or another document of the university judged to be equivalent. Once the permit is in your possession, you immediately have to transmit it to the management. If you are of foreign nationality, without any revenue and unable to provide a guarantor in Switzerland, you have to pay two months rent in advance over and above the other conditions. Once the lease is signed, the guarantee established, the first rent and the two months supplement in advance paid, you can present yourself at the reception, the manager awaits you there.
