Re: Regulations on house rental (Permit B v.s. C)

From What I learned, when permit B holders buy a property, it has to be their primary residence and thus they can't rent it.
Non-EU B can't buy with intention to let right away, you have to live there for a while, establish a residence. It's not forbidden to rent out if you decide to move out abroad or somewhere else in Switzerland. The law (BewG/BewV) regulates just the part about buying.

I was told couples own the property together no matter who bought the property, as long as they're married by law
It's totally possible for a single spouse to be 100% sole legal owner. Whoever's name is in the land registry is the owner. It can be one spouse, or another, or both in some fixed well-defined proportion, depending usually on how much cash each contributed.

Complications may arise however in case of divorce if you're a couple with "Gütergemeinschaft" status - then your assets are indeed considered shared.
