3. Advance payments

After our confirmation of the availability of the room, we request the payment of an advance of 2 months’ rent (tourist tax included, if applicable) corresponding to the payment of the first and the last month of the stay, one month as a guarantee and 300.- CHF as a furniture guarantee, both of which can be released after the tenant’s departure.

The payment is to be made to:

Beneficiary: Fondation Solidarité Logement pour Étudiant‑e‑s
Bank: Banque Cantonale Vaudoise, Lausanne, Suisse
Bank address: Place St-François 14 – CP 300 – ​1001 Lausanne
Account: U51938054  – Clearing : 767
IBAN : CH44 0076 7000 U519 3805 4

The advance rent must be received by FSLE within 7 days of confirmation of the room to complete the reservation.
We will send you the lease contract by email or post upon receipt of the rental advance.
If the deadlines are too tight, it must be received no later than the day of your arrival so that the keys are handed over. And if these do not allow a bank transfer, the payment will be made in cash before the keys are handed over to a post office OR a BCV bank. In this case, the contract will be transmitted and signed when the keys are handed over (please provide the payment receipt).

Please note that if, for any reason, the student shall not complete his studies in Lausanne, the total amount paid will be returned within 30 days after receipt of proof that the student is not going to study in Lausanne.
