Rental deposit guarantee without bank deposit from SwissCaution
More scope for you and your money

Anchor Navigation

It isn’t always easy to come up with the necessary rental deposit equivalent to several months’ rent. Perhaps the rental deposit from your previous home has not yet been refunded or you simply want to use that money for other projects. Take advantage of the rental deposit guarantee without bank deposit – a service offered in association with SwissCaution.

  • Rental deposit guarantee replaces your rental deposit
  • An anniversary discount of 30% on the lump sum registration fee in 2021 (see conditions)
  • No period of notice
  • Favourable conditions for young people under the age of 26
  • Rental deposit guarantee certificate within 24 hours

Important information

Will you soon be moving house? This is the opportunity to subscribe a rental deposit guarantee from SwissCaution. This prevents your money from being blocked in a bank deposit for several months.

If you already have a security deposit lodged with a bank, you can always switch to a SwissCaution rental deposit guarantee. This will enable you to recover the money you deposited with the bank.

The SwissCaution rental deposit guarantee is similar to a conventional bank deposit in terms of security, value and purpose.
