All you need to know about the rental guarantee

If your landlord has claims against you (for example, damages or unpaid rent) and if you give your consent, SwissCaution will directly pay the amount claimed up to the maximum amount of your rental guarantee. You will then have to reimburse SwissCaution the amount that was paid to your landlord.

Do not forget to contact your insurer (civil liability/home insurance) to check if those costs could possibly be covered.

The SwissCaution rental guarantee procedure is simple, efficient and fast. We process a rental guarantee request swiftly, provided that the tenant sends us the request and all the necessary documents and pays the annual premium. The rental guarantee certificate is then sent directly by mail to the landlord or the landlord’s representative with a copy sent to the tenant.

If you have subscribed to a SwissCaution rental guarantee for a residential lease and provided that you fulfill the eligibility requirements (no pending debt collection procedure with SwissCaution), you will get the following discounts on your premium:

  • After 2 full years of insurance, a 10% discount
  • After 3 full years of insurance (but not before January 1, 2025), a 20% discount
  • After 4 full years of insurance (but not before January 1, 2025), a 30% discount

The Youth Offer discount can be combined with the Loyalty Discount.
