I need to ask for your help because we are stuck with the lease of a flat in Cologny.
We signed a 2-year lease last may, when we thought we would move to Geneva, but then had a different job opportunity in London, where we live, and decided to stay. We have been paying the rent (crazy uh?) since then, while looking for a new tenant (we paid an agent for the viewings). Unfortunately the housing market, at least in that area, is not moving at all. The agent is now saying that we can't even rely on the Diplomatic Clause in the contract, as this only applies to people being transferred abroad. Is there any lawyer out there who think could help us? Or anyone who can recommend one? We are desperate and terrified at the idea of being stuck with a double rent for another year and a half. Please help.
