[PDF] UMS General Terms & Conditions
Michael Meyer will be coming to Switzerland for six months. He works as a consultant and is looking for a temporary place to stay. Romana Schmid is going travelling and wants to sublet her flat to save on rental expenses while she's away. They meet on UMS - the portal for furnished private homes.
We specialise in advising private individuals to sublet their apartment for a limited period of time and we are much more than a portal - we combine the advantages of an internet-platform with the security and service of an agency.
Platform, expert advice and agency services with almost 30 years of experience - you'll only get that with us!
Private apartments are cheaper and more personal than business apartments and hotels.
Get everything done easily and securely in our portal.
The personal portal for temporary housing - we are happy to help you with your search.
On the No. 1 portal for furnished apartments in Switzerland.
We promote your offer on the best-known real estate & expat portals.
Thanks to our security system and almost 30 years of sublease experience.
Before, during and after the sublease.
We work according to the UMS Win-Win-Win system. It works like this: Legally, our housing providers could charge an additional 20% for furnishings in addition to their cost price. However, we recommend to avoid doing this and only charge at cost price – this way, our Win-Win-Win price system creates three winners.
Win1: Our housing providers have their costs covered - but do not charge anything for furniture.
Win2: We are there for you - instead of our providers, we increase the rent price by 20% (UMS service fee) in order to make the portal and our service available.
Win3: Our tenants do not pay for more than they receive - they pay for the rent, and pay us an additional 20% – equivalent to the value of the furnishings.
The UMS service fee is 20% of the gross rental payments over the duration of the rental contract including any renewals. Rental prices on the UMS portal include the service fee.
Particularly attractive offers are highlighted by the following icons:
The landlord is renting out at his own cost (resp. at market price if he is an owner) with no surcharge for furnishings.
The landlord is renting out below cost price (resp. below market price if he is an owner).
We combine almost 30 years of experience as the market leader for temporary accommodation in Switzerland with individual service, all offered on a modern portal you can use to temporarily rent or sublet your flat – easily, safely and with all the legal details taken care of.
In other words, we specialise in helping private individuals who are looking to temporarily sublet their flat or anyone who is looking for temporary accommodation for professional or other reasons.
