What is the net living area?

General

The net living area is the sum of the areas of the various rooms in the property that are liveable.

The calculation of the net living area includes built-in cupboards, fireplaces, kitchen units as well as interior staircases, mezzanines and attics according to the cantonal regulations.

 

The interior and exterior walls of the dwelling are not taken into account in the calculation of this surface, as well as separate laundry rooms, balconies, loggias and terraces, vertical technical ducts or window and door niches.

 

To be counted in the calculation, its surfaces must be fully accessible and usable and have a minimum height that varies by canton.
