Re: What is "vente en nom" and "vente en PPE"?

As explained earlier by UKPenguin, vente en nom means that the property is sold to you directly and not as a share, ie through SIAL. The difference is that it is taxed differently and also you can not buy through SIAL if you are not Swiss/EU national. Which does not matter much because few houses today are sold through SIAL.

And PPE means propriété par étage, which is one form of ownership where you basically own one part of the land and the right to a housing unit that is built on it.
