Good news for home sharers in Switzerland

 

There’s good news for home sharers in Switzerland, following an announcement by The Federal Council declaring they believe the current federal law for online accommodation platforms is sufficient and, furthermore, they’ve stated that it should be made easier for hosts in Switzerland to share their home with guests.

This decision is the result of a report, conducted by the Department of Economics, Education, and Research (WBF) by order of the Federal Council.

The Federal Council also wants to make sharing one’s home easier in the future. Currently, hosts must get their landlord’s permission every time they want to share their home. In future, it should be made possible to get a long-term permit by the landlord.

We will keep our host community in Switzerland updated with any further changes to home sharing regulations.
